I loved this recipe. It was so easy to make, tasted great, doesn't cost much, and is a great make-ahead recipe. Just place a covered dish of unbaked stuffed shells in the freezer and bake for 30-35 instead of 20 minutes to heat. I did make a few adjustments however, I used cottage cheese in place of the ricotta because I prefer the taste, and I used a blend of reduced fat cheese instead of mozzarella, again because of taste preference.
