italian stuffed shells

this looks messy, and it is, but you will love this! its like a ravioli but much more flavorful and satisfying.
1 box jumbo shells
spaghetti sauce of your choice
1 lrg container of cottage cheese
1/2 C. powdered parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1 Tbls. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
cook shells until tender. drain and set aside. mix all ingredients, except shells and spaghetti sauce, in the blender or food processor. fill each shell with cheese mixture. place stuffed shells in a deep baking pan. once all shells are stuffed and in the pan, pour spaghetti sauce over the shells until all shells are covered and there is some sauce in the bottom of the pan. sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over shells. bake for 30 min. at 350 degrees.
