      My family loved this dish! (Even the picky eaters ate it all! This did not taste or look like a "low-fat" dish! The recipe was very easy to make but I did alter it somewhat. I made my own corn tortillas, but I don't think that changed the taste or texture. I also used the 16 oz. bottle of salsa, but did not add additional tomato sauce. In addition to the ground turkey, I added one 16 ounce can of pinto beans.

      I've had this recipe saved for awhile and just made it last night for the first time. What a hit! My whole family loved it (not always an easy accomplishment). I used 1.25 lbs. of ground beef & also made the cottage cheese (about 12 oz) blend with two eggs instead of the egg substitute and also mixed the shredded cheese right in with the cottage cheese & eggs. And what's Mexican lasagna w/out chili powder & garlic powder. This will be a regular dish at our table from now on!

      I really liked this, as did my two year old and husband. I cooked the turkey and kept it separate. I simmered the other things together and only put turkey on half (meatless side for me) and also used eggs (3, but 2 would have sufficed). Used hot enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce - thanks for a good recommendation there! Thanks I liked the soggy tortillas! That is the way they are supposed to be in mexican casseroles!!
