Heat oven to 350°F. Cook and drain pasta shells as directed on box minus a couple of minutes on cooking time. The shells are easier to stuff if they aren't cooked all the way through.
Using the same pan as to cook pasta in, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Add taco seasoning mix, crushed tomatoes and 1 cup of the shredded cheese; stir well until cheese is melted.
Fill each pasta shell with about 1 tablespoon beef mixture; place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Top filled shells with plum tomatoes and chopped cilantro; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve warm.
