Expert Tips

  • Let go of lettuce, and move on to curly endive or watercress sprigs to garnish these sumptuous shells.
  • Serve these jumbo shells either cold or warm. To serve warm, place shells on a microwavable platter. Cover with plastic wrap, folding back one edge to vent steam. Microwave on High 2 to 3 minutes or until warm. Serve with heated vinaigrette, if desired.
