1. Cook the shells in a large, deep pot in rapidly boiling salted water until al dente.

2. Meanwhile, combine ricotta, 4 cups Marinara Sauce, and Pecorino Romano cheese in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes or until well combined and hot. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Cover and keep warm.
