Delicious, So good & easy to make. I made 1/2 the recipe for the 2 of us. I had fresh spinach, so I steamed & drained it. Baked it for about 25 minutes it was bubbly and browned. DH said, this is a keeper. Like you said, tasted like Cannelloni without the pasta. Thank you Ginny for sharing this recipe.

This is so yummy and easy to make. I was thrilled with how quickly it all came together. I used about 1/2 the amount of cottage cheese and added a bit of parmesan cheese. It was delicious. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.

This is SO good! I used an oval baking dish. After baking for 20 minutes, I took it out of the oven and set my broiler to high, without changing the rack level. After it preheated 5 minutes, I set it under the broiler until the cheese was bubbly and browning like I like it. To die for! It really is like cannelloni without the cannelloni! LOL
