Large Pasta Shells

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a gluten-free company that makes the large pasta shells like you would use in manicotti? I've had several types of Tinkyada and Deboles but have never been able to find these. TIA!

Tinkyada does make a large shell that is used for manicotti. I can usually find it at Whole Foods or Wild Oats.

Tinkyada does make a large shell pasta, Brown Rice Grand Shells. http://www.tinkyada.com/ProP1.htm

But from what I see on their website, you have to buy 12 pkgs. at a time if you buy from them. It does have a long shelf life, but that's more than I can picture using in the next 5 years.

If I see single packages anywhere, I'll snap one up and PM you.

I use Tinkadya large shells for my stuffed shells and they work very well! I have bought them online at first, and then when Wegmans started carrying them, I just get them there.

Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and Wild Oats are all about 100 miles from me and the two health food stores I frequent don't have them yet. And, alas, no Wegman's anywhere! May try your suggestions of ordering online (don't think I'd use 12 bags though! :( ) TYVM all!

Here you can order it one box at a time for $3.29 a box. They also have lots of other yummy treats.

Thanks! For some reason, I just now found this reply. Link didn't work, but I'll try to figure it out. :)

I had bought some of the Tinkyada big shells over the internet, but I found that many of them were broken in each box. I cooked them up anyway, filled the ones that were whole, then made lumps of filling in the dish and covered them with the pieces of broken shell. It worked great, but it made me wonder why I went to the bother of stuffing shells when I could just cover the filling with any kind of pasta and get the same general result! Kind of like, why make all the layers of lasagna, when the same ingredients mixed together (subbing ziti for flat noodles) makes baked ziti, which tastes the same.
