Perfect! I made this for our recent vacation to Manitoulin Island. I doubled the recipe and put both ricotta and cottage cheese in and omitted the cinnamon. I cooked and then froze them. I added a can of spagetti sauce and shredded mozarella on top of both 9 x 12 pyrex dishes before reheating them in the sauna (let it warm all day). It was phenominal!!
