A fun twist on regular tacos. These Taco Stuffed Pasta Shells will be a new family favorite dinner recipe! Taco Tuesday just got a little more interesting!
Taco Stuffed Pasta Shells are easy, delicious and budget friendly. And you can save even more money with the Walmart Savings Catcher! I am really excited about this app.
Basically, if a local competitor offers a lower advertised price on an item you purchase at Walmart, Savings Catcher allows you to get back the difference. The Savings Catcher Reward Dollars can then be redeemed for a Walmart Rewards eGift Card or added to your Bluebird by American Express Card. I know how I’m paying for Christmas this year!
This is perfect for me because I either forget to hand the cashier my coupons. Or on the rare occasions that I do remember, the cashier forgets to scan my coupons and I don’t notice until I get home. Now all I have to do is remember to enter my receipt info to Savings Catcher within seven days of my purchase. This can be done by either scanning the receipt with a smart phone or by going to walmart.com/savingscatcher and entering the receipt info as in the below photo. #WMTSavingsCatcher
I saved $1.94 on this quick trip to Walmart. That adds up!
So when you head to Walmart to pick up the ingredients for these Taco Stuffed Pasta Shells, save your receipt! You get to eat this satisfying dinner AND save money! Two of my favorite things.
