    Mikekey's Note:

    Similar to Spanakopita but without the spinach. Work quickly with the phyllo and keep the sheets you are not working with covered or it will dry out quickly. Cook time includes refrigeration time. From a church cookbook (Assumption Greek Orthodox Church).

      Other than using low-fat cottage cheese, made as written. DS, and I had a slice for lunch, and we, (kids too), had a ready dinner. 2 slices each filled us up, The prep time took a bit longer, but it was me. Prep time is close to what an average person can do it in. Made for a great and flavorful meal. Made for Football Pool.
