Big Pasta Stuffed Shells

Recipe by Timothy H.

This is very easy to make if you can boil water! My sauce is excellent with this dish (Spaghetti Sauce Made With Pork Neck Bone! Italy 1870-1900!--Give it a try)!

Very easy and yummy!! I made this exactly as stated, which I don't normally do, and it was really good! Thanks for the post. I'll be making this again.
