Cook pasta shells al dente in a large pot of water. Drain and rinse well to prevent sticking. Do not over cook or the shells will be hard to stuff.

Combine ricotta cheese, egg substitute, 2/3 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and parsley and mix well.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 8 ounces sauce evenly over the bottom of the baking dish. Fill each shell with about 1 tablespoon of cheese filling and place open side up in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining shells.

Pour remaining sauce over shells and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and bake for 30 minutes or until heated through and bubbly. Uncover and continue baking another 10-15 minutes or until cheese browns a little.
