This recipe features fresh summer vegetables, creamy pesto, and lemon. Top it with buffalo mozzarella and lemon zest for the perfect finishing touch.

“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.
