Recipe #2: Metapod uses stringshot, it's super delicious

This is a quick and easy mini-mannicotti and can be eaten with your hands.

You will need: 1 box of Barilla Jumbo shells, 1 package of frozen meatballs,Finely shredded mozzarella cheese,shredded parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, 1 jar of tomato sauce, salt,pepper, garlic,olive oil.

Prep:Begin by boiling a large pot of water, add salt and olive oil for surface tension.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a seperate pan simmer your package of meatballs on medium heat in a mixture of the tomato sauce and 1 cup of water. Add pasta as the water boils and drain accordingly.

As soon as the meatballs are cooked through place one each inside a jumbo shell with one spoonful of ricotta cheese and gently close. Place them in a large glass baking dish tightly packed to prevent breaking.

On top of all of these spread parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, and the rest of the tomato sauce and bake for 12 minutes.
In the end they should look like pods covered in stringy melted cheese. Enjoy!
