I used rago and rice noodles i stead of macaroni. Changed the spices some. Added garlic powder pepper onion powder plus onions. Came out very well. Plus added a 4 cheese cause my hubby loves cheeses. Easy to make and delicious.

It was delicious. I seasoned my meat and used ragu sauce. Had a nice seasoned taste. I also used cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Shells took a little bit longer to cook, overall it was great. Will make it again.
