large pot and add shells. Return to a boil, then continue cooking for 5 to
6 minutes more, or until shells are barely tender. Drain and set aside on
flat baking sheet (to prevent sticking). In a mixing bowl, combine cottage
cheese, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg whites, parsley,
salt, and pepper. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce onto bottom of a 13 x 9 x
2" pan. Fill each shell generously with chesse mixture, about 1 tablespoon
in each shell. Place filled shells in pan. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce
over each shell, then top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for 45
minutes or until golden.
