Stuffed Shells

Stuffed Shells is a perfect dish for vegetarians and is just yummy in general. It took me a while to find this recipe because in Texas there seems to be no option for jumbo shells. This is the recipe my mom uses. I know instead of ricotta you can use cottage cheese, but ricotta tastes SO much better. Here is the link for the recipe:
