RECIPE: VANILLA SHELLS, AN EASY DESSERT PASTA RECIPE

Katelyn makes this recipe with small shells, but you can try one jumbo shell per person, stuffed with ice cream.

You can choose a flavor other than vanilla, but make it a good pairing with the pasta. Banana, Butter Pecan, Chocolate, Dulce de Leche, Peanut Butter, Rum Raisin, and Salted Caramel sound good to us.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 box shell pasta (conchiglie)—use tricolored shells if possible
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon rum or brandy extract
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Optional garnishes: brandied cherries, candied nuts, chocolate shavings, fresh fruit, whipped cream
  •  
    Preparation

    1. COOK the shells with sugar, vanilla extract, and optional rum or brandy extract.

    2. Drain; cool as desired. If the shells are warm, the ice cream will melt into them more readily.

    3. SERVE in a festive dish, a sundae dish, or a wine goblet with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Garnish as desired.
