Does anyone know where to buy jumbo pasta shells?
This recipe looks yummy but haven't seen shells this big before.

Barillo make jumbo shells. Perhaps contact them and they may be able to tell you where to buy. It is likely to be at a specialist shop not a supermarket. will

Sabato sells them online. (not cheap though) https://sabato.co.nz/la-genuina-orecchiotte-semola-to-stuff

I thought that they were expensive, but "Bag contains approximately 60 pasta shells." so I guess it would depend on how many one was feeding.

I've seen huge pasta shells at our Countdown

Could make your own, using a small mould.

Our local Bin Inn Store has large pasta shells. La Molisana, Pastificio Extra de Lusso, Conchigle Grandi, No 313

I think I have bought them in the past from Passion Produce on Hobsonville Road. In the corner or near the corner where the loose potatoes areais if that is any help.

Thanks for the suggestion, we're local to the area so will try Passion Produce, tried Binn Inn in Glenfield but they didn't have any.

What area was that Bin Inn?

Chef_bruceakld, May 26, 2:21 am

Had no luck at 2 different Bin Inns or Passion Produce.
Did eventually find some at Farro on Constellation Drive (about $8 for a 500g packet).
Thanks everyone for your suggestions :-)
