This was really yummy, and it went over very well with DH and 2 yo DS (always a bonus!). I made some substitutions but feel confident rating it 5 stars as I don't think the essence of the recipe was changed at all. I used whole wheat rotini as it is what I had on hand, and realized too late I was out of parmesan so used shredded mozzarella instead. I also used ground turkey as we don't eat a lot of red meat. Finally, I subbed oregano for the cinnamon because I'm not a huge fan of cinnamon in savory dishes. The feta really made the dish, IMHO, and using a flavored one (I used tomato basil) added even more. The only thing I'll do differently next time is I will add salt and pepper to the cottage cheese/spinach layer. Thanks for a hearty, healthy recipe! Made for 123 Hits tag.
