Brown beef, onion, garlic, and mushrooms. Add sauce and diced tomato and simmer. Cook pasta as directed, drain, and rinse with cold water. Mix cottage cheese, egg, crumbles, and parmesan together until well blended. Spray baking dish with pam and line bottom with sauce mixture. Take each shell and stuff with cheese mixture and then place in baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over stuffed shells and sprinkle with the 2 tbsp of parmesan left over. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
This recipe looks delicious, but I thought this website was for people trying to eat healthier and lose weight. This is not the right meal for that! I was looking at it trying to slim it down, like lower fat cottage cheese and cheese. Again, looks good, but not at this time in my life.
This looks like a good tasting recipe, but sodium could be halved by making your own spaghetti sauce, leaving out the crumbles, and using Italian spices like basil, oregano, and rosemary instead.
