Ingredients

1 box large shells

10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained

1/2 pound Italian sausage

1/2 pound small curd cottage cheese, drained

1 Tbsp. minced garlic

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. oregano

1 beaten egg

2 cups spaghetti sauce

2 cups mozzarella cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to directions on box.  Rinse in cold water and drain well.

Break the sausage into small pieces and saute.  Mix with the spinach, cottage cheese, garlic, lemon juice, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and oregano.  Stir in the egg.

Stuff the shells with the sausage mixture and place, open side down, in a greased baking dish.  (I had to use two 9×13 dishes).  Top with the spaghetti sauce and the mozzarella cheese.

Bake until hot and the cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
