Stuffed Shells


1 box jumbo stuffed shells
1 24 oz. container of cottage cheese
1 jar of tomato sauce
1 egg
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups grated cheese (I used an Italian blend.)

Cook pasta according to box. Drain and cool.
Combine egg, cottage cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, and 1/2 cup grated cheese in bowl.
Fill each jumbo shell with a spoonful of cheese mixture.
Place in casserole dish. Pour sauce over shells, top with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cake Balls


Cake mix (whatever kind you like)
Can of frosting (Again, whatever kind you like)
Almond Bark (They make vanilla and chocolate.)

Bake cake according to package directions.

While cake is still warm, break into small pieces. Mix frosting and cake crumbs together in bowl and chill in refrigerator for an hour.
Roll cake mixture into balls. 

Melt almond bark and dip cake balls in until covered completely. Place on wax paper until almond bark is hardened. I like to put mine in the freezer because I think they taste good cold. Enjoy these yummy little bites!
