(WSYR-TV) — Sometimes we have Melissa in the kitchen to help us celebrate a holiday or a special theme, but other it’s nice to have her in the kitchen just because we like her recipes. Today is one of those “just because” days, and Melissa joined Bridge Street with a new recipe for stuffed shells.

Melissa featured Lagana Cerrillo sauce in the dish, which is a locally-made sauce. You can find out more about their sauce by heading to their website at laganacerrillo.com.

Here is the full recipe for the stuffed shells:
