Step 1

Add vegetable oil and shells into a large pot on low-medium heat. Fry shells until lightly browned.

Step 2

Add ground beef. Fry with shells until all beef is fully cooked. Mix in garlic, salt and pepper.

Step 3

Add diced tomatoes, tomatoe sauce, and 6 cups of water to pot. Bring to boil and add cheese. Let boil for 8-10 min or till shells have softened. Remove from heat & serve.


Shells will continue to soften after removed from heat. I stop boiling a couple of minutes before shells are fully cooked so they won't be soggy.
