Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500°; bring a big pot of water to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, combine cream, ½ cup chicken stock, all the cheeses, and salt in a large bowl; mix well.
  3. Taste and add more salt, if needed; set aside.
  4. Generously salt boiling water and drop in pasta; cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 minutes.
  5. The pasta will be parboiled and too hard to eat; it will cook further in the oven.
  6. Drain pasta and transfer shells to the mixing bowl.
  7. Combine thoroughly with the sauce mixture; if it seems too thick, add some more chicken stock, a tablespoon at a time, until the pasta moves freely and is surrounded by liquid.
  8. Transfer to individual shallow baking dishes or to 1-2 shallow baking dishes.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the pasta is bubbly hot; serve immediately.
