Granny's Shells Recipe

Granny's Shells Recipe

*From the kitchen of Granny Whetstine (with a Fangboner twist)

My granny used to make this easy pasta recipe for all of us, then my mom started making it, and I just love it! There’s no greater comfort food, honestly. This is also one that we’ve brought to weddings. You may have noticed that me saying I brought something to a wedding is how I show my absolute faith in it. After all, the best gift you can give your friend on her big day is the kind where she doesn’t have to worry about there being good food.

1 ½ pounds ground beef                            1 chopped onion

½ tsp Fangboner Farms Italian Blend      1 chopped bell pepper                

1 can Rotel                                                    1 can tomato sauce       

1 box of large pasta shells                          salt and pepper as desired         

Place ground beef in a large Dutch oven. Season w/ salt, pepper, and Fangboner Farms Italian Blend. Add the chopped onion and bell pepper. Cook and stir until the meat is brown. Add sauces and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it simmer, covered, for about one hour.

While the sauce is simmering, cook shells in boiling, salted water. Drain and add to the sauce mixture. Continue simmering to let seasonings mix with the shells and get tender (about 20 to 30 minutes).

Moms, this is an especially good recipe for you when you are busy and have picky kids! It was always a go-to for our mom. And for Granny😊
