Made this for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011 and what and easy and delicious recipe. I did use recipe#443364#443364 for the sauce but otherwise I followed the instructions...putting half in the freezer for later.<br/>I used ricotta cheese over the cottage cheese and definately will make this again. Served with a green salad and garlic bread. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
