Stuffed pasta shells but with a twist! Instead of filling pasta shells with ricotta, I thought I'd mix things up and stuffed it with vegan sausages. To make it even better, I topped EACH pasta shell with Dibble Cheese Sauce. The result? Super cheesy, creamy and delicious pasta. 

Perfect for winter (and any season really) so try this ASAP and happy cooking!
