If you don't like marinara sauce, a nice cream sauce or traditional pasta sauce will suffice.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
If it's got tons o' cheese, chances are I'm going to like it! Indeed, I LOVE these. Simple as they are, they pack one big flavor punch. I add a little garlic to the cheese when I make 'em, but season to your liking.

4 oz
mozzarella cheese, low-fat (shredded)
8 oz

Randi, made these for dinner tonight and they were simply wonderful! Hubby enjoyed very much! I just changed one thing and instead of putting mozzarella on the top, I used a blend of shredded colby and swiss. Will definitely be using this recipe again! :)

EASIEST way to stuff any pasta: put (cooled) filling into a zipper lock bag. Smoosh down into one corner and snip off that corner with scissors. Squeeze filling into pasta! I happen to own pastry bags and use those, but I've used this trick many times when at someone else's home or when we're camping.
