Italian Beef and Shells
This is a Taste of Home Recipe. I "like" their Simple and Delicious Magazine on Facebook and get great recipe recommendations right on my news feed. The recipe also has the calorie count!
1-3/4 cup Italian Beef and Shells Recipe - 396 cals
1 slice 5 cheese Texas toast - 180 cals
TOTAL CALORIES = 576
That is way more calories than I usually spend on bread. DH went to the grocery store awhile back (he knows that I don't approve!) and bought the devil bread. It was good though.
Notice the serving size of the pasta for 396 calories!
Was it easy?
Absolutely! I will often brown a big batch of ground beef and freeze it in 1 lb portions. I boiled the noodles and chopped up the veggies in no time.
Was it kid friendly?
Yes! They both gobbled it up. At first Anna didn't want to eat the yellow squash. As soon as she heard the word "squash". But after I told her it was yellow zucchini she ate it :D This is going in our regular rotation.
