I love a jumbo shell dish. Because they’re just so whimsical! There’s something about digging into this ginormous shell with ooey gooey cheese bursting from the seams that just brings you right back to childhood.

Those flavors of tomato sauce, cheese and pasta are classic and timeless for a reason. They just work. And with a sprinkle of fresh basil over the top, it finishes is off and really rounds out the savoriness with a bright burst of freshness!

You can heat it up as-is for dinner, you can pop a couple shells on top of a salad for a quick meal, you can smoosh it up into scrambled eggs for a breakfast of champions any Nona would approve of. The possibilities are endless.
