To lower fat while boosting nutrition in this popular Italian pasta recipe, replace some of the high-fat cheeses with crumbled tofu.
Cook pasta shells about 12 minutes or until tender but still firm; drain. Cool shells in a single layer on a piece of greased foil.
Meanwhile, for filling, mash tofu in a bowl with a fork. Stir in egg, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, the 2 tablespoons parsley, and oregano. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Spoon a scant 1/4 cup filling into each cooked shell. Arrange filled shells in a 2-quart square baking dish.
Combine undrained tomatoes and tomato sauce; pour over shells in baking dish. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until heated through.
To serve, sprinkle with additional parsley and Parmesan, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
