  • Meanwhile, mix cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Drain pasta shells, arrange into a baking dish, and stuff with cheese mixture. Pour tomato sauce over shells.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheeses are melted, about 45 minutes. Remove dish from oven; set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Top shells with remaining mozzarella cheese and broil until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You can use homemade tomato sauce or your favorite store-bought.
