I made these tuna stuffed shells many years ago when I first seen the recipe in my Taste Of Home Cookbook and it was excellent for a lite lunch and perfect to serve on those hot summer days. I didn't make the dressing in this recipe at the time, I used lite Italian dressing and drizzled it over the shells and it was still so delicious.
This recipe can be used as a great appetizer, snack or lite lunch.
