"This recipe is a hit wherever you go. It is a very rich and cheesy meal and looks like a deep-dish pizza when done. I altered what I was originally given because I did not like cottage cheese and added other ingredients that I thought it deserved."

This is the third time i've made this and I love it. I discovered if I make the filling first and put it in the fridge for a while while preping my other items, it becomes firmer and SO much easier and neater to stuff the shells.

Restaurant quality! Believe it or not, I was able to reduce the fat, and it still came out delicious. I bought lowfat ricotta cheese, used only 3/4 cup mozzarella + 1/2 cup parmesan in the filling (added 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, and would do that again), and left off the cheese in the sauce, just sprinkling a bit of parmesan after baking so it looked pretty. It made two 13x9x2 pans, and I wish I had used 2 jars of sauce instead of 1. The sauce dried out after baking, so next time, I will cover with aluminum foil first, and remove it the last 10 minutes or so. Thanks so much for the recipe - will definitely be making it again!

My family loves this recipe! My 3 year old eats shell after shell!! We're not a mushroom family, so I leave those out. I scoop the filling into a big ziploc bag, close the top up, make a small cut in one of the bottom corners and squeeze into the shells - no mess! I also divide this recipe into two 9x13 pans. We eat one and the other goes into the freezer for later. Freezes really well!
