    1/2    c             fat-free Parmesan cheese (I use Weight Watchers)
    2                    egg whites

 To prepare spaghetti sauce, saute' mushrooms, onions, peppers, and garlic
 until tender. Then, add meat and cook until no pink remains. Drain. Stir in
 undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
 Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover; and simmer for 30 minutes. Then, set
 aside. Preheat oven at 350. To prepare stuffing, bring water to a boil in a
 large pot and add shells. Return to a boil, then continue cooking for 5 to
 6 minutes more, or until shells are barely tender. Drain and set aside on
 flat baking sheet (to prevent sticking). In a mixing bowl, combine cottage
 cheese, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg whites, parsley,
 salt, and pepper. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce onto bottom of a 13 x 9 x
 2 pan. Fill each shell generously with chesse mixture, about 1 tablespoon
 in each shell. Place filled shells in pan. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce
 over each shell, then top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for 45
 minutes or until golden.
