Wrong, wrong wrong. Do NOT boil the pasta. This is insane. Why anybody would do this is crazy. Stuff your shells raw. Why go through the hassle of trying to stuff limp pasta? Then, put a layer of 50% water and 50% sauce in the bottom of your baking dish. Layer the pasta in your dish and then cover with sauce, Sprinkle with Parmesan, cover with foil and bake for 55 minutes. Uncover and return to oven for 5 more minutes after sprinkling with some more cheese. You can add wine instead of water if you prefer. The pasta will cook in the diluted sauce and taste 10x better to boot. Made this dish for 40 years. Bon Apetit, Chef Cosmo.
PS- Please do not use cottage cheese for the ricotta or add sour cream or eliminate the eggs. They are there for a reason. Would make my Italian ancestors turn over in theor graves. TY and GL.
