    Yum! Plenty of salt in the other ingredients so I left it out of the mixture. Used fat free ricotta and reduced fat parm. Chose a reduced sodium sauce (Healthy Choice). Will definitely make this again. My husband didn't even miss the meat. ;-) Thanks for posting! - 10/2/09

  • FYI - My Moosewood lowfat cookbook says you can sub whole-wheat tortillas for the noodles. It would probably add a little fiber bump too. - 1/6/12

  • I made this tonight , & it was delicious! My husband isn't a big pasta guy , but he really liked it. Even my fussy 14 year old daughter liked it. She just asked me to use less Parmesan cheese next time. It was so easy. I can't wait to make it again. - 1/17/10

  • Couldn't find large shells, so I used whole grain shell-shaped pasta and mixed everything. Left out the salt and egg (not stuffing anything), added a sauteed chopped onion, only used 1/2 c lowfat ricotta, used a jar of sauce. Tasted great! Will definitely make again. - 11/8/09

    I've heard of a similar recipe from my friends, but I've always wondered if taking the egg out would ruin it? Has anyone ever made this w/o the egg? I've heard this sort of dish is amazing and would love to make it for my family. My daughter has a life-threatening allergy to eggs. Thanks! - 3/20/09
