1Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a baking/casserole dish with cooking spray. Cook shells according to package directions.
2Mix chopped chicken, egg, ricotta, parsley, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella and 1/2 cup parmesan in bowl and set aside.
3Make white sauce: Melt butter in saucepan, add flour. Cook a little, to get rid of the flour-y taste, but don't let butter brown. Whisk in cream, salt and pepper. Once thickened stir in parmesan cheese.
4Spoon a little bit of sauce in each cooled shell and fill each with chicken mixture.
5Spread half of the marinara on the bottom of your pan. Arrange shells in the pan and pour white sauce over the shells.
6Drizzle the rest of the marinara over the top and sprinkle remaining mozzarella over all.
7Cover and bake about 40 minutes until hot through out. Uncover and bake another 15 minutes until golden and bubbly.
