This was a huge hit with my family! One person even wants it as their birthday dinner now!! Thanks for this recipe.
I used spinach won tons, and I had a leftover bean dish that I used for this. I replaced the cottage cheese with cream cheese. This is a fun to eat and healthy recipe that everyone will enjoy! Great eats! Thanks.
