Instructions

Parmesan 'Taco' Shells
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Working in 2 batches, scoop 6 mounds of cheese (1/2 cup per mound) onto baking sheet, spreading each mound about 6 inches wide and spacing at least 1 inch apart. Bake cheese 8 minutes or until melted and golden. (check occasionally while baking so shells won't turn too brown).
  3. Remove baking sheet from oven and let cool about 1 minute. Remove cheese disks, one at a time, with spatula and drape over a rolling pin. Let stand until completely cool. Cheese will harden as it cools. Once cool, remove from rolling pin. (Keep discs warm until ready to mold; they harden quickly as they cool.)

  3. Cook meatballs in same skillet about 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides.
