    20 jumbo pasta shells
    1 can lump crab meat (6-8 oz.)
    10 oz. part skim ricotta cheese
    1 egg
    4 cloves garlic, crushed
    ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
    ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    salt and pepper, to taste
    1 cup fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, mix together crab meat, ricotta cheese, egg, garlic, Parmesan, mozzarella, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Prepare the pasta according to the box directions until al dente. Rinse shells with cold water and drain well.

Mix the spinach and basil leaves into the cheese mixture. Gently fill each shell with the crab/cheese/spinach mixture. Place shells (open side up) in a baking dish.

In a bowl, stir together the half and half, remaining Parmesan, spinach and garlic. Pour sauce over the top of the shells and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella. Bake for 15-25 minutes, until heated through and bubbly.
