This was great... I actually purchased my ingredients and then left the recipe at the office. However, I made the shells according to the box and added the broccoli to the boiling water, I browned the sausage separately and then once I drained the shells, I tossed everything into the pot where I had cooked the shells, including the tomatoes. I even added a bit of velveeta cheese to make it cheesier. My 5 year old son LOVED it!
