Excellent pasta dish! I cooked the shells in my pressure cooker (10 min) and made some flavorful stock! I used 2 lbs medium shrimp but stayed with the recipe. I used very large tomatoes (3) and didn't bother seeding them. My husband and father in law enjoyed this very much, too! Thanks SkinnieMinnie, for posting. Roxygirl
