Sweet Balsamic Glazed Stuffed Shells

12:36 AM

I found this amazing sweet Balsamic Glaze at smiths about a month ago and have been putting it on as much stuff as I can. This glaze is very similar to a lot of the glazes and balsamic vinegars we had while my husband and I were in Italy a few years back. We just don't make balsamic vinegar the way they do. It's much thicker, richer and sweeter there. This balsamic glaze from Private Select adds a ton of flavor to most Italian dishes. We recently tried it on our favorite stuffed shell recipe and I can honestly say I will never eat this dish without the glaze now. It was amazing!!! Tastebud explosion! The right kind of taste bud explosion! 

I am also a big fan of Ragu and love the sundried tomato and sweet basil sauce they have. This is the perfect sauce to pair with the balsamic glaze because of the bold sweet tomato taste in the marinara sauce. The filling we use is very similar to a lasagna filling instead of just using ricotta cheese we combine it with a mixed blend of shredded cheese and parmesan. The entire flavor of this dish is rich and hearty that the whole family will love. 

Tip: Cook the dish until the shells and cheese are a little toasty and crunchy on top for some extra amazing texture.
