Cheesy stuffed shells made a great Italian dinner!
1 container (16 oz) 2% Milkfat Low Fat Cottage Cheese
1 pkg. (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1 cup Kraft 2% milk shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup Kraft grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
20 jumbo pasta shells, cooked, drained
1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
1 large tomato
I also added Italian meat since Karl needs his meat!

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix cottage cheese, spinach, 1/2 cup mozzarella, Parmesan and seasoning; spoon into shells. I mixed in the ground meat too and stuffed into shells.

2. Mix sauce and tomatoes; spoon half into 13x9 -inch baking dish. Add filled shells; top with remaining sauce. Cover.

3. Bake 25 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining mozzarella; bake uncovered, 2 min. or until melted.

Cheesy Stuffed Shells - Oh, so good!
Karl's reaction: "You know, I decided I don't like grape tomatoes. They remind me of biting into a nest with little seeds. I eat this and it's all good and saucy and then I get a grape tomato and it pops in my mouth and throws off my palette. But this is very good. I like it."

My take: I like this a lot. Everything about it screams yum!
