Made small appetizer size - Excellent flavor -I like the addition of the cottage cheese it mellows the flavor. Be sure to drain the cottage cheese well so there isn't too much moisture- thanks Tonkcats for posting. 6 Sept 2011 I have made this recipe over & over again - They freeze really well and only take abour 20 minutes from Freezer to serve 375 oven

Great recipe, and my guests were very impressed! I found it easier to stack 3 sheets of phyllo, each brushed with butter, then cut the stack into three strips with a pizza cutter. Also, I had some filling left over, and ended up adding some ricotta and making spinach lasagna the next day (yum!)

Fantastic!!! My 2 yr. old wouldn't let me play with the phyllo, so I wound up making a pie with lattice top out of it. Everyone loved it...from the 2 yr. old, 14 yr. old brother, 19 yr. old brother, and 28 yr. old brother (vegetarian)... and Mom & Dad! Thanks for sharing!!!
