Nothing difficult really, a very easy and delicious Italian dish that you can prepare under 20 minutes. We usually cook spaghetti, macaroni or penne. So today we’ll use shells, the texture is really different and the advantage is that you can fill them.

In this delicious recipe by Cooktop Cove, four different cheeses are mixed in with savory basil pesto and stuffed into dreamy pasta shells before being cooked to perfection in the comfort of your own slow cooker.
