In an effort to experiment with taste and cuisine, I’ve let my creativity wander towards some pretty interesting flavor combinations. One of my recent brainstorms was, “why not put fresh stuffed shells on the grill?! That would surely taste amazing!”
We tried it a few weeks ago, to rave reviews. It was delicious! We used vodka sauce and lots of fresh basil. The fresh stuffed shells went into an aluminum pan and heated on the grill to impart that deliciously smokey flavor.
This time around, we opted for marinara sauce (but stuck with the loads of fresh basil) AND… we took the leap and put the shells right on the grill this time. Heaven. It’s just such a wonderful taste. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner!
These fresh stuffed shells were cooked on the grill!
I should have taken pictures of the perfectly charred underside of the shells. As a consolation prize, here’s a pic of the plated shells at our Sunday dinner table:
