These are INCREDIBLE! I made them today for my sister's birthday. The best stuffed shells I have ever had! I did substitute the cheeses with lowfat varieties, used fat free cream cheese, and used lowfat ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Thanks for the great recipe!

Nurse Di, this is another great one. I added 1 t. minced garlic to the filling. I really liked the meat, spinach, and cheese filling in the shells. The sauce was delicious and seasoned well. I served this with salad and garlic bread. A perfect meal. Our breath was kickin though. Oh well, can't have it all.

I made the shells for my mom's birthday. The recipe was time consuming, but the end result was more than worth the time spent. It was hard for my family to believe that I made the recipe since it tasted so good. It did make 28 shells and was good with the shells frozen and then reheated later, since it made so many shells. I will make this again ASAP!

We had these for dinner last night and the first thing my husband said to me this morning was "those shells were GOOD, I think I want them for breakfast"! This recipe does make a lot, I had 28-30 shells, some of which I flash froze and are in a storage bag in the freezer so that I can put sauce on and bake at a later date. The sauce is easy and delicious and I will use this recipe for other things like chicken parmesan, etc. I used italian turkey sausage and was skeptical of the cream cheese, but it worked beautifully and was different than the typical ricotta/mozzarella/parmesan shells. It was a little time consuming, but I made it the night before and popped them in the oven when I got home from work. I will definitely be making these again.

This is a 6 star recipe! The only change I made was that I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Even my kids asked for seconds. Perfecto!
