What an easy and delicious recipe. I really had to wonder when I sprinkled the flour over the hot broccoli and onions but I trusted you, Mirjam! =) I did make a substitution for the cottage cheese...I used ricotta and a bit of milk instead and it was fine. This recipe is in my cookbook for good! Thanks for posting. Barb
This is so good. I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us. I still have ingredients for the other half which I will be making very soon. A great comfort dish. Thank you for sharing.
I make the same recipe only I use 1 cup shredded cheddar and 1/4 cup parmesan. I will have to try it with mozarella. (I would have given this 5 stars, but hubby isn't too fond of it *there's no meat !*. Must be a guy thing.
