I made this tonight, I had to change it just a little. I had tomato paste, so I made my own sauce with that and some chopped onion and mushroom and pepper and tomatoes. I added the hamburger meat to that sauce. I also used an egg and mixed the cottage cheese with the egg, some mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. As others suggested I used a zip lock bag with the tip cut off for putting the cheese mixture into the shells. That worked very well. I spooned in the sauce on top of that, inside the shells, after they were all filled I put more mozzarella and Parmesan and garlic powder on the top of all of it and then baked for 30 minutes. I usually won't give a lower than 5 rating to a recipe that I modified. In this case it seemed the shells would not actually be very stuffed, but more cooked in sauce...if you stuffed them with just the beef. I layered everything inside the shells, no sauce poured on the top or under, which did take some time, but they came out Wonderful. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
