This recipe is from an older Weight Watchers recipe and the info on points is from the nutritional info.
I did make a few changes so had to add more points, but for my family using alfredo sauce instead of plain tomato sauce made all the difference.
I am calculating with the changes it would be around 8 points per serving which is 3 shells.

Ingredients

21 large
jumbo pasta shells

10 oz
package frozen chopped spinach, zapped in microwave 3 minutes and moisture squeezed out

15 oz
jar light garlic alfredo sauce, we used bertolli's
6 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the olive oil in a heavy saucier, add the chopped onions, saute until almost translucent, add the garlic, cook for another minute, then add the ground turkey and cook until the turkey is cooked through.
2
Meanwhile cook the shells in boiling salted water to package directions, then drain well.
3
In a large bowl put the rest of ingredients except the alfredo sauce and mozzarella.
4
Add the turkey mixture to the bowl and stir until combined.
5
Fill each shell with 2 rounded tablespoons of filling and place in a well greased 9 by 13 inch pan.

Pour the alfredo sauce evenly over the top. I usually reserve the mozarella for the last 10 minutes of baking for extra ooziness.
