this came from Mr. Food's quick and easy diabetic cooking * an easy way to fill the pasta is to place the cheese mixture in a large resealable plastic storage bag, then snip off a corner, just squeeze the filling into the shells, like using a pastry bag*

This is a lovely meal. It's a little messy to make but worth the effort. Next time I think I'll try it without the spaghetti sauce as I found it overpowered the lovely creamy spinach filling a bit. I'll either make my own sauce to top it with or I might try to just top it with 2 cups of chopped tomatoes! Thanks for sharing :)
