1 (16 ounce) package
medium seashell pasta
1 1/2 pounds
3 (14.5 ounce) cans
Italian stewed tomatoes
beef bouillon cubes
1 1/2 tablespoons
ground black pepper
We used petite diced tomatoes & left them as is. We omitted the salt, used extra minced garlic (3 cloves – total) & veg. stock instead of bullion cubes. We added close to 1T Italian seasoning, about 6 oz. fresh mushrooms (personal preference) & a couple shakes of LA Gold (hot sauce). This is a great week-night “quick fix” dinner.
We did not care for this at all. Not even doctored up with spices. Sorry.
Don't use 3 beef stock cubes if making this in the Uk or Ireland - just use 1/2 a knorr stock cube. They're much smaller in the states.
This is such a delicious recipe. I only make 2 small changes. First, I use small pasta shells instead of the larger. Second, I use a spicy ground sausage instead of ground beef, it gives the recipe a nice sweet and spicy taste. Excellent recipe!!
This was a great Monday night dinner! I thought it was really tasty- had a sweet, tangy flavor that was SO comforting! I did add 2 more cloves of garlic but and cut back onthe sugar a bit. So good- kids LOVED it.
Really simple, and tasty. I really liked this and got compliments on it.
This was super simple, and tasty too! I like my sauce thick so I used 30 oz. crushed tomatoes (which I didn't grind) and 16 oz. tom. paste. I also cut down on the bullion and added more garlic. The kids loved this!
Very easy to make, and my three year old just loved it! It might be good with some mushrooms added.
