Vegetarian Pasta Shells

A great variety to the same old pasta dish!

20 jumbo pasta shells
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1 carton (15 oz) part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 jar (26 ounces) meatless spaghetti sauce
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, broccoli, mozzarella, egg whites, and seasonings; mix well.
Spread half of the spaghetti sauce in a 13x10x2 inch baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Stuff pasta shells with ricotta mixture; arrange over spaghetti sauce.
Pour remaining sauce over pasta shells. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until heated through.
