Chicken, Broccoli, & Cheddar Stuffed Shells

Growing up, broccoli & cheddar soup was always one of my favorite comfort foods. Unfortunately it wasn’t always suitable as a “full meal” for me, so to make it more filling I’d pour it on top of a cooked chicken breast and call it dinner. To be honest, making a vegan version of that would be insanely delicious as well, but when I was thinking about what to make using the Moocho Cheddar Shreds, I was like… wait. What if I take all those flavors and stuff them into pasta and top with a cheese sauce, and y’all. These DO NOT DISAPPOINT!

Big shoutout to Moocho for collaborating with me to create this insane recipe! Their cheese makes SUCH a creamy cheese sauce and browns/melts beautifully on top. I seriously am addicted to these & I know you will be to!
