This is a quick easy dish that's a nice change from lasagna that goes well with a side salad.

Very tasty! As is, I give the recipe a 4 out of 5. Next time I will saute the spinach with some garlic and onions and add the cottage cheese right before I take the mixture off the heat. I think that extra step recommended by other reviewers will give it that extra bit of depth and make the recipe 5 stars! Also, used just over a 1/2 cup of raw orzo and the crust was great!
