If you like Mexican and Pasta you will love these Taco Stuffed Pasta Shells.  It is like eating tacos with a fork.    This is one dish that Bill likes taking for lunch.  They heat up really well as left overs.  I pack left over supper every night for Bill's lunch the next day.  It really saves us a lot of money by him being able to pack and heat up his lunch each day.
