We all really enjoyed this! I added 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese before bringing to the table. I did use my own spaghetti sauce though.

I wasn't sure if I would need so many pasta shells. Good thing I bought them all because it took me both boxes to find enough un-broken shells to assemble this recipe. Relatively time consuming but excellent for fulfilling those cravings without all the fat.

Wow this was really good! I added a bit more garlic and stuck with the cottage cheese. It was still very good and felt pretty healthy. Actually I used manicotti since that was all I had and it ended up splitting, so I made a pseudo-lasagna really. All in all, it was very good. Thanks!
