  • Turn the oven on, setting it to 350 Fahrenheit

  • While the pasta is boiling, mix the cheeses together in a bowl
  • Chop the fresh basil and add it to the cheese mix
  • Open your tomato can and mix in pepper + garlic powder
  • Assuming the pasta is al dente, drain and rinse in cold water
  • Place the pasta shells in a large lasagne tray
  • Point the opening of the pasta shells up, so you can fill them with the cheese mix
  • Fill and/or cover the pasta shells with the cheese mix
  • Make sure to cover most of the pasta with a thin layer
  • Pour the tomato sauce over the cheese
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake it for 25-30 minutes
