This recipe was originally made with Crab. If you're not a seafood lover, like myself, you'll find the tuna more appetizing as it just adds a nice texture to the meal instead of a strong seafood flavor.
For the Sauce:
In a medium frying pan, saute onions in butter until softened. Add tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. Simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside 1 cup of the sauce and pour the remainder into a large casserole dish.
For the Pasta Shells:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cook pasta shells according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, mozzarella, egg, tuna or crab, green onions and pepper. Spoon a tbsp of the filling into each shell and arrange in single layer in casserole dish. Sprinkle with parmesan.
Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with reserved sauce
