Which "character" are we celebrating? The Pillsbury Doughboy of course! On this day in 1965, he made his debut to the world. To honor that, I selected a favorite Pillsbury recipe for you to try!

Take a look at these Taco Stuff Shells! I'm of Italian ethnicity, and I love my past recipes, but hey - this is a twist I don't mind.


I'm absolutely in love with the combinations of cultures here. For ingredients you'll need...

8 oz uncooked jumbo pasta shells (about 24 shells from 12-oz box)
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 package (8 oz) shredded Mexican cheese blend (2 cups)
1 cup diced plum (Roma) tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

The whole recipe takes about 35 minutes to prep, and up to 55 minutes to actually cook. I don't recommend it for a night you need to be quick about things, but if you've got the time - this one is worth it!

Try it for dinner tonight! Get the full recipe here.
