In a medium bowl combine – 1 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan, ricotta, eggs, spinach, garlic, pepper and parsley.

Pour a thin later of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a 12 x 9” baking dish. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Spoon the cheese mixture into each shell and place right side up in a baking dish. Repeat until cheese mixture is gone. Pour the remaining sauce over the shells. Sprinkle the lemon basil on top.
