Creamy Beef and Shells

I absolutely love a quick and easy recipe that is full of flavor. This Creamy Beef and Shells was a huge hit at our house! The tender beef and the cheese on top were just perfectly melted over the shells. You know I am all about easy recipes. Sometimes we are just looking for an easy weekday meal that is still comforting while we are whipping up a dessert to serve guests later in the evening. So this super-fast dish is perfect for that!
