  • Cook the pasta shells in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 10 - 12 minutes until just tender.

  • These stuffed pasta shells can be served as a tasty first course, with a light tomato dressing. Arrange the shells on individual plates.

Spoon this dressing over the pasta shells and serve with crisp toast or French bread.
