   Prepare pasta according to package directions.
   
   While pasta is cooking, preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
   Toss the zucchini with the garlic powder and put it
   into a colander. Let it sit 5 minutes and then squeeze
   out as much moisture as possible. In a large bowl, mix
   zucchini mixture with bread crumbs, pepperoni and egg
   white, stirring well. In a medium mixing bowl, stir
   together the ingredients for the sauce.
   
   When pasta is done, drain well. Rinse with cold water
   and drain again. Stuff the shells with the filling
   mixture and arrange them in a 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan.
   Spoon the sauce over pasta and sprinkle with the
   mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Bake uncovered 15 to
   20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
