Stuffed Shells with Pasta Sauce

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. Italian Sausage
4 oz. cream cheese

Cook meat, drain, cool. Mix in cram cheese. (This works best if you use your hands crumbling the meat as you mix)

12 jumbo shells
1 T. Oil
1/2 med. onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 can (4 oz.) mushrooms, drained
1 jar (14 oz.) pasta sauce (can use spaghetti or pizza sauce)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Cook shells according to directions on package, drain and cool. Saute onion and peppers in oil until tender. Add mushrooms, pasta sauce, garlic and seasoning. Stuff shells with meat mixture. Place in 8 x 8 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour sauce evenly over shells. Cover with cheese. Bake 350 degrees 20 minutes.

This recipe came from a combination of 2 recipes that I pulled from. You can use all ground beef or all Italian sausage. You can change the flavor completely by using shredded chicken in place of the beef/sausage and Alfredo Sauce in place of the pasta sauce.
