What's not to love about stuffed shells? Loaded with cheese and tomato sauce, this pasta dish is a total crowd-pleaser. To change it up, you can add a little lean ground beef or different herbs to the sauce. Also, it's easy to double the recipe and freeze one batch.

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes or until almost al dente. Drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.
3. Combine 1/2 cup Italian-blend cheese and next 6 ingredients (through ricotta) in a bowl. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese mixture into each pasta shell. Place shells, stuffed sides up, in a 13 x 9inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour sauce over shells. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Italian-blend cheese. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Tip: If you don't have any My Secret Tomato Sauce prepared, the Organic Tomato Basil Sauce from Whole Foods Market is a great go-to option.
