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

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!!

I made this tonight and my family did not enjoy it. The tortillas got soggy in the middle of the dish. I guess we just prefer pasta lasagnas.

Really good. Used black olives on top. Next time I'll use more tortillas for extra body.

This was a great, simple recipe. It didn't take long to make and turned out quite flavorful. Like some other reviewers, I made some minor adjustments. I added cilantro to bump up the flavor, seasoned the ground turkey, and added onion and garlic powder. I also mixed half enchilada sauce with half tomato sauce. Based on what I had in my cabinet, I used flour tortillas and 2 eggs. I'm definitely keeping this recipe!

This was really delicious - and simple to make! I did make a few changes...I used taco sauce in place of tomato sauce because that's what I had. I also added olives, and used flour tortillas. YUM!

I had this recipe saved for a while, but hadn't made it because corn tortillas were hard to find in our area, but now Dempsters makes some tasty ones. I used ground beef instead of ground turkey because that was what I had. I also mixed in a little lime juice and zest with the cottage cheese. I had a few fresh jalapeños that didn't seem very hot to me so I sliced them and layered them in with ingredients. When serving, I added a dollop of sour cream. My DH inhaled his piece and went back for a second...and so did I. Even with hot salsa (and the jalapeños), it wasn't that hot - the flavours really blended. Thanks for a recipe that I know will become a regular at our house!
