- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

- In a small bowl, mash the pulp. Add the cottage cheese, tuna, celery, onion, 1/4 cup cheese, paprika, salt and pepper. Spoon into potato shells. Place on a baking sheet.

"Only Mom liked these. I think I could spice it up for next time. The family ate them but they weren't clambering for more."
