Barilla Jumbo Shells

I thought jumbo shells would be in a much bigger box.

I can't believe there are 35 shells in this box.

But I guess they aren't really that big. Just big enough to fit in my cupped palm.

The cooking directions are built into the recipe for Barilla Jumbo Shells Stuffed with Cheese.

They are supposed to be cooked for 9 minutes in boiling water, but I only did 8 minutes in salted boiling water.

They are really firm, but should soften a little more during baking.

Barilla Jumbo Shells, available in the pasta/Italian/ethnic aisle of Ralph's for $2.59 a 12-oz box.
