Pour the rest of the spaghetti sauce over the top. Sprinkle on zucchini slices. Spread 2-3 c. mozzarella and 1/2 c. Parmesan over top. Cover loosely with aluminum to keep cheese topping from getting too dark. Bake at 350 for 1/2 to 3/4 hour.

Note from Faith: About 20 years ago Kathy served me these delicious shells and gave me the recipe, which she had invented. So I was the first to write it down. In September 2009, I suggested she share this recipe with the rest of the family in our cookbook. Kathy said she doesn't have it written down and has probably changed it over time. She would now love to try her original recipe again. So here you are, Kathy, and the rest of the family. Enjoy!
