Stuffed Shells

This is a recipe from my friend Ashley Standridge. She brought this to us after Carrie was born. It's absolutely delicious and it goes a long way. See her note below.

1 box jumbo shells
1 1/2 pds ground beef
2 t. oregano
2 t. basil
1 egg
2 cups mozzarella
1 lb. cottage cheese
2 T. sugar
1 jar spaghetti sauce

Brown beef and drain. Cook shells according to package directions. Mix together cottage cheese, cheese, sugar, spices, eggs and beef. Pour a layer of spaghetti sauce in bottom of 9X13 pan. Stuff the shells with mixture and place in pan. Pouring remaining spaghetti sauce over stuffed shells. Bake covered at 350 for about 1 hour.

NOTE: this can be frozen before cooking. And I've wanted to try it not stuffed in a shell, but maybe mixed all together with a different type of pasta (penne, ziti, rotini). The stuffing can get somewhat time consuming, and I think it would be just as good all mixed together with a different noodle :) ENJOY!
