Conchiglie al Forno (Shell-sanga)

Conchiglie al Forno

When looking for a hearty dish to serve at a party (or when you have an army of teens to feed) I turn to this no-fail pasta recipe.  I have nick named it Shell-sagna since it is closely related to baked lasagna, except it’s a bit easier to prepare and serve.

An easier spin on lasagna and a hearty crowd-pleaser.

  5. Spread a layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan

Notes
  1. While you could go through the extra steps of making a Bolognaise sauce before making this, many cooks make a really big pot then freeze batches. Alternatively, pick up some fresh store-made sauce.
