Cheesy Pasta Shells with a rich tomato sauce
November 30, 2011 in Uncategorized
Making these stuffed pasta shells was my come back after a few days of non-cooking in My Easy Cooking HQ. If you are in the kitchen all day, every day, then trust me, come dinner time, few dishes have a wow-factor anymore. All you can think of is just feet-up and rest, but alas, I have a family to feed and a spoiled one at that!
Pasta is such a “good old faithful” so I make sure that I am well-stocked. Walking down the pasta isle in my supermarket is such fun, because I visualize all the lovely recipes I can try…… Fettucini Alfredo, Spaghetti Carbonara and oops, I almost forgot my signature Pasta with Butternut and Biltong! To whip up a quick tomato or Alfredo sauce takes literally minutes and you can have dinner on the table in no time. I think there are very few, if any, pasta recipes on my blog that take longer than 30 minutes and with pasta being such a money saver, there is always room for one extra at the table. With a teenager in the house, extra quests at the table have become a normality rather than a rarity.
Before you click away looking at this picture, thinking that life is to short to well, stuff a pasta shell, stick around, this is really very easy and the result is so worth it.

The giant pasta shells are sometimes a bit tricky to find, but I found mine at our local PnP and I know Giovanni’s in Green Point also have them in stock. However, if you struggle to find the pasta shells, I am sure this recipe will be perfect for Cannelloni too.
