My mom used to make this often. It's NOT tater tots! Great warming winter meal. NOTE: Don't skip the dill weed. It makes the whole meal.

- 1 (16 ounce) carton nonfat cottage cheese

I love dill! Followed recipe to a T and it was perfect. We all loved it. I cook for a big family and this made everyone happy and full. Will be making this often.
