Try this premium take on a shells & cheese dish, featuring a blend of Italian cheeses and truffle oil. Top with toasted panko breadcrumbs and bake in the oven for extra deliciousness. 

“Conchiglie” translates to “shells” in Italian. Barilla Al Bronzo Conchiglie pasta is made by extruding dough through a bronze die that is micro engraved. This gives the pasta a rougher texture, allowing pasta sauces to perfectly adhere to our beautifully crafted pasta.
