Seashell Supper

Seashell Supper


"My mom made this as a throw together meal when I was a kid She was surprised when, as an adult, I served it 'outside the family'. It's a wonderful kid-pleaser, and very easy to make. A meal in itself! Although, cornbread on the side is a great touch. Even the leftovers are delicious, warmed or cold. I often find myself with a fork digging into the leftover bowl right out of the fridge:)"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the seashells, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. Place bacon in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Drain off most of the fat, and add the onion to the skillet. Cook and stir until transparent. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to your liking. Serve sauce over pasta.

I added a can of corn to this and I precooked the pasta before mixing it in. I also precooked the bacon and drained it then added it crumbled to the ground beef mixture while it was cooking. Thi...

This is a great, easy recipe. I had a little spicy bulk sausage in the fridge so I browned that with the onion and used canned tomatoes with jalapenos, nice kick! This has become a weekly dish...

This was very good. Reminded me of the "spanish rice" my mother used to make back in the 50's. I divided it since I cook for just myself, but still have alot of leftovers. I would use less wat...

Great, simple and nutritious (especially if you choose your bacon carefully!). I didn't add the 2.5 cups water...found it unnecessary. I added a can of drained kidney beans for flavour and to ...

Good, in a pinch for something to make, however the flavor was just okay. I added some garlic and that seemed to help.

This is a very tasty recipe. I cut the recipe in half and it still made enough to feed a family of four or five. I also did not use as much water as the recipe said. I will definately make th...
