Ingredients

  • 6 uncooked jumbo pasta shells
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup 4% cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, Asiago cheese, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, chives and 1/2 cup spinach (save the remaining spinach for another use).
  • Spread 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce into a shallow 1-1/2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Drain pasta; stuff with cheese mixture. Arrange in prepared dish. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce and mozzarella.
  • Cover and bake until heated through, 25-30 minutes.


Freeze option: Cool unbaked pasta shells; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in the center of 2 or 3 shells to read 165°.
