Give Fall a Warm Welcome With Pumpkin-Stuffed Shells

Stuffed shells are kind of an ideal comfort food. Warm, cozy — they’re perfect for fall.

Well, almost perfect, anyway. The addition of pumpkin takes them up a notch, and this recipe from Eggland’s Best for pumpkin-stuffed shells (with eggs — yay for added protein!) is one we’re gonna be whipping up on the regular over the next few months.
