  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. A perfect base recipe to start with for any vegetable quiche. I didn't have cottage cheese, so, being the bold substituter that I am, I subbed in ricotta cheese and plain yogurt. I also sprinkled feta and parmesian on top for a nice extra. Next time, I'll add mushrooms and green onions... maybe even some chopped zucchini.
  5. This came out delicious with the cottage cheese. Im the only one that ate it, but it was great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Light and filling.
