Super easy, tasty and light! You won't even miss not using beef.

Ingredients

    Sauce:
    ~Cook ground chicken in a skillet, adding 2 tbs Worcestershire if you prefer a more "beefy" flavor.
    ~Add jar of sauce and let simmer with chicken.
    ~Place 1 ladle of sauce in the bottom of 13x9 baking dish.

    Pasta:
    ~Combine 1C ricotta and 1C cottage cheese and egg in blender or food processor until smooth.
    ~Wash and chop spinach, add to cheese mixture. Pulse to combine. Don't over-process or it will be a green blended mix instead of flecks of spinach.
    ~Scrape cheese mixture from bowl or blender into a large ziplock or piping bag. Cut a small hole in the bottom corner of the bag and fill each shell.
    ~Place each shell in the pre-sauced pan, top with rest of sauce and bake for 30mins or until sauce bubbles.
    You can top with shredded cheese if you wish.
