Say What??

I know that many who read this will take one look at the ingredients and say.."What??". I am yet again inserting pineapple into a dish that may surprise you. But I'm going to ask you to trust me. While unconventional, this pasta will surprise you! I offers a refreshing twist on an all too common classic. So don't be afraid, try something new and tell me if you don't love it!


1 box pasta shell, cooked according to package directions
1 16 oz. can pineapple tidbits, slightly chopped
2 C. cooked shredded chicken
¼ C. chopped celery
½ C. chopped cashews
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 ½ t. salad supreme seasoning
½ C. mayonnaise
2 C. marinara sauce
2 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Mix the chicken, pineapple, celery, cashews, seasonings and mayonnaise together in a mixing bowl.
3. Stuff the cooked pasta shells with the chicken mixture.
4. Place the shells in the prepared 9x13 pan.
5. Top each shell with a tablespoon of marinara sauce.
6. Cover with shredded cheese.
7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until heated through.

This sounds so good, Mindi! I love pineapple. I'm not including sugar and carbs in my diet right now, but I'll have to try it when I am again.

I hope things are going well with full-time mom. I love your posts. You're pictures are fabulous of your dishes! You go, girl!

I love this recipe I have one from Giada de Lurenttis and I feel in love with stuffed shells and fresh tomato sauce, yummy

I can see how these might be good. You should try the pineapple black bean enchiladas in my blog - I add chicken to those too and they are fantastic

Yup, not gonna lie- that one looks interesting, yet I'm completely intrigued! I have a couple of recipes that make people nervous at first too- and they involve pineapple use in unconventional ways! I will have to try this- I trust you!
