Chef John....You Rock! I could just sit and listen to you as you cook all night! Can you come to my house and cook for me? (just kidding!) But you do have a very calm, fun, and easy going voice that's hypnotizing! I'm going to make your stuffed shells this week end. Come on over - (just kidding!!).

I love cooking with leftovers. Chef John is right - it doesn't matter how it turns out have fun and experiment. If you had a few leftover cocktail shrimps I bet they'd be great chopped up and added in.
