i'm not one to follow recipes to the letter so i threw in some mushrooms and sauteed them with the onion & celery mixture and pretty much followed it from there. the crust was a bit dough-y from the cottage cheese but it sure did taste good. i'd make it again but maybe i'll bake the crust first, just a bit. i used one of those pre-made frozen crusts.

This recipe was really easy to follow and was quite delicious. It reheats really well, too, for small families. I think next time I will buy the crust, as mine needed a little more polishing. Thanks for the recipe!

I just happened to have all the ingredients at home for this. I'm sure glad I did. It was delicious. I used fresh washed spinach and popped it in the microwave to wilt it, then chopped it. I substituted some green onions, chopped, that I needed to use up. And like others, I prebaked my shell 10 mins. at 450 F. Definitely, will make it again for us.
