This recipe is pretty and satisfying enough to entertain with, yet easy enough to whip up on a weeknight. This was one of my favorite childhood dishes with the creamy delicious cheese sauce enveloping the shells, topped with a flavorful zesty tomato sauce. Serve alongside a simple garden salad with a classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Balsamic dressing.
Cook the pasta according to pack instructions, drain and reserve some of the water it was cooked in. Gently melt the butter in a large frying pan with heavy cream and cheese, add the pasta and toss the two together. Add 4-5 tbsp. of the pasta water to the pan. Season with salt and black pepper. Heat through then remove the mixture from the pan.
Top with grated Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano) and fresh Black Truffle if in season.
