With a shape that resembles a seashell, it is easy to see how the locals in the seaside communities of Naples and Genoa got their inspiration in the creation of Medium Shells, or as the Italians call it “Mezzo Conchiglie.” The concave shape allows this whole grain pasta to capture the flavor of your favorite sauce and ingredients. Barilla® Whole Grain Medium Shells cook up perfectly “al dente” every time, especially for recipes like Whole Grain Shells with Roasted Asparagus, Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano Cheese as well as when substituted into semolina medium shell recipes.
