READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Manami

Loved these! Substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese, & grated Romano cheese for the Parmesan, if you choose. It is possible to substitute frozen, chopped broccoli for spinach. Found in Kraft's Food & Family.

Very good! I actually forgot to put the egg whites in the mixture, but it still turned out great. I will definitely try it again with the egg whites...maybe that'll make it even better.
