Good looking spread. I've heard others talk about the crunchy noodles. Not sure how they got around it.

Jim
Thanks. I will be looking into it also. Maybe it’s norm idk to be continued. It’s only the second time I have done them. The flavor was great tho.

To remedy the crunchy noodle, stuff and bacon wrap the night before. During that time the moisture from the bacon and stuffing will help to pre soften the pasta
I did do that I did them at like 8pm lastnight I am thinking and it seems when eating atleast on the ends the wasn’t fully covered is the crunchy part so I think some of them need more bacon wrapped on them.
 
Funny, I had a reel pop up on instagram for shotgun shells. They said to hold for 24 hours in the fridge prior to cooking, Moisture from bacon and meat softens the shell. these are still on my list to make!

Last batch I made, I soaked the shells for a few minutes in warm water just prior to stuffing. Neither hard nor soggy, but still pliable enough to stuff. It seemed to do the trick.

I will have to remember that when I do them again thanks
I should mention, that after that, I did let them sit in the fridge overnight, also.
