Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from the back of the Jumbo Shells box. You can use Ricotta cheese, instead of cottage cheese, if you like. I often adjust the amount of the ingredients use a 9 x 9 square baking dish, which can fit about 15 - 16 shells. I have also made this omitting the meat and it still is good.
