    Whisper's Note:

    This is a nice casserole to take to a pot luck dinner. It's easy and inexpensive to make. I prefer to use fresh spinach. It can be made ahead and frozen for those nights you don't want to fuss after working all day. Serve with bread and you have your entire meal. Prep time includes time to saute meat and onion.

      I used low fat turkey italian sausage and 1% cottage cheese for this which reduced the calories but not the taste. This was very good and we will be making this again. My DH needs to gain weight so we put his on top of noodles. I found that it was a little runny however after cooling it set up very nice much like lasagna.

      I only just liked it but my fiance really liked it. Next time, I will add more seasoning and maybe try ricotta cheese & an egg instead of the cottage cheese. Mine didn't turn out watery at all. I used frozen spinach and canned mushrooms. I did find that using a 7x11 pan was too big had to use all the spinach mixture on the bottom and then just layered meat mixture and cheese on top. I got 6 servings from the recipe...but we aren't big eaters.
