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!

This recipe exceeded my expectations. I left out the onions because my husband doesn't like them and instead I added fresh peppers which I cooked with the turkey. I also added a can of black beans and I replaced the tomato sauce with enchilada sauce. I would've liked a bit more of the cheese and egg mix so next time I may increase it or even double it
