Stir in 2-1/2 cups cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese just until melted. Spread 1/2 cup cheese sauce in each of two 11-in x 7-in x 2-in baking dishes that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Top with stuffed shells and remaining sauce.

Cover & bake at 350°F for 25 min. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 10-15 min more or until bubbly & cheese is melted.
This is a very filling dish. I tried my best to make it lower in fat and calories and still taste wonderful; which it does. Serve with a simple salad for a complete meal.
