Tasty Tuesday

Here is a quick and delicious recipe that a friend shared with me. Normally my kids are not fans of tuna or shrimp BUT they loved this recipe.
Seafood Stuffed Shells

Ingredients:
1 T butter
1 onion
1 block of cream cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t salt
1/2 t dried thyme leaves
1 can light tuna (drained)
2 oz. frozen small shrimp (thawed and chopped)
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 package of jumbo macaroni pasta
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400*F. In large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Then in a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until crisp-tender; stirring occasionally. 
  2. Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to saucepan a;ong with milk, salt, pepper, and thyme. Simmer until sauce blends; stir occasionally. Reserve 1/2 sauce. Next, add tuna, shrimp, and Parmesan cheese to reserve sauce.
  3. Cook shells in water until almost al dente. Drain, rinse shells in cold water, then rinse again. Stuff shells with seafood mixture.
  4. Pour half of the sauce in a 2 quart baking dish. Top with the stuffed shells, then pour over remaining sauce and sprinkle shells with Swiss cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese melts and begins to brown.

Note: Keep in mind that you can add any seafood into this recipe. My husband doesn't like tuna, so next time I will add crab.
