From Taste of Home Healthy. Everyone loves this one. One serving is three stuffed shells. A serving is about 360 calories. This has been one of those go to comfort recipes on my journey to lose weight. I have lost 50 pounds and don't feel deprived. Pair with a nice side salad for a meal that is sure to please and won't kill your waisteline.

Absolutely loved this recipe!! My picky little ones gobbled them right up. I know this is supposed to be a lighter version, but next time I can't help but to add some Fat Free Sour Cream and a mock guacomole!! Thanks for this keeper.

Loved this recipe. I used medium hot salsa instead of taco sauce.
