Ingredients

    14 jumbo pasta shells
    1 1/2 c pasta sauce
    2 large egg whites, gently beaten
    1 1/2 c part skim ricotta cheese
    4 oz. chicken, cooked and diced
    1 c frozen spinach (chopped) thawed (drain all excess water)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350
Cook shells in boiling water according to the directions on box.
Rinse with cold water and set aside for later use.

Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and spread 1/2 c of pasta sauce evenly over the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

For filling: Stir together egg whites, ricotta, chicken, spinach, garlic powder, basil, and seasoning. Stir in 1/4 c of mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.

Fill each shell with mixture and place filled shells in the baking dish on top of the sauce. Spread remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 30 minutes.
