Tips.

Paccheri are perfect for this recipe, because you can optimize the time and prepare the sauce while they cook. However, if you prefer other pasta shapes, as an alternative you can use rigatoni, linguine, or spaghetti.

You can use tomato sauce or tomato pulp, or our Country basil pasta sauce.

Instead of provolone cheese, you can use Parmigiano, Grana Padano, or even mozzarella cheese (just chop mozzarella cheese and add right before serving).
