A pasta dish is not called as such if it wasn't for the pasta noodles used. For this recipe, you need the shell type pasta or best known as Conchiglie. This type of pasta originated in Italy.The shell shape pasta allows the sauce to adhere to it. This type of pasta is popular in UK. For cooking the pasta sauce, I highly recommend using olive oil. Based from my experience, olive oil adds aroma to the dish that you are cooking. You might be thinking what is this olive oil anyway, This oil is a fat obtained from the olive that is a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. Compared to an ordinary cooking oil, this has a green color and has this weird smell. For added aroma, don't forget to add these Italian herbs. You might be curious as to what are these herbs. You can choose from basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano, parsley and many more. These herbs can add the aroma and flavor to your pasta sauce. You can put all of these or just choose 3.
For the cheesy effect, Make sure to put in lots and lots of Mozzarella and Ricotta cheese. Yummy. This recipe will not be complete without the tasty spaghetti sauce used. You have the option to buy those pre-packed ones in the stores or make your own version. Spaghetti sauce is made from tomatoes and has this sour to salty taste. This where they get their color and sour taste. Make sure to cook your pasta shells "al dente". For those who are not familiar with this word, al dente is an Italian term meaning "just right" pasta noodles are best enjoyed when it is cooked just right. Not too soggy nor too hard.
