WW Stuffed Shells

This makes 20 shells.
We love stuffed shells and these were made differently for us, used fat free ricotta and mozarella as well.
I was amazed they were as good as they were, but the marinara sauce was home made and would make a rock taste good.
Also had some left over Italian sausage and put some of that in GW's portion of shells.
Each shell has a point value of 3 if made with lean hamburger, I used ground sirloin
