A nice twist on two favorite comfort foods-Tuna casserole and Mac 'n Cheese. I liked the addition of the cottage cheese. This turned out very light, more like a souffle. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 8x8-inch pan. Thanks for this keeper!

I made this recipe on 9/7/14 for mine and my SO's dinner, but most importantly for the PNW portion of the " Culinary Quest 2014. Except for reducing the recipe by half,this was made as written. I do believe that when this is made again, I'm going to keep the full amounts of the seasonings. Baking time was " SPOT ON ". I've had several " seafood type " casseroles and thought they were just o.k.,but I think it was the cottage cheese and egg that made this one stand out. Thank you for posting, and " Keep Smiling :) "

Very good but next time I think I will add frozen peas or other veggi. i did use non-fat cottage cheese, skim milk and reduced fat cheese and less butter than indicated. Good comfort food! Thanks for sharing!
