I really like this recipe, but the second time that I tried it, I made some changes. Instead of using cottage cheese, I used ricotta. I think it gave it a nicer texture, and survived the baking better than the cottage cheese. Also, I drained the spinach by placing it in a paper towel and sqeezing out the excess liquid. Otherwise, the dish becomes very watery.

Not bad. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. It was kind of flat, but tasted good. Wasn't my favorite, but I would probably make it again.

We loved this recipe!! It had a great flavor and was very filling. A helpful hint, squeeze your spinach dry. I used a hot italian suasage and added onions and garlic to the meat mixture. I also added a can of italian tomatoes (drained well). This dish is a hit and was fought over for lunch leftovers. :)

I was looking or something quick and easy to make for a potluck with ingredients around the house, came up with this, and it was great. I didn't have sausage so I used ground turkey with some extra italian spices and used about two cups of cooked pasta instead of half of the spinach. I also used a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and a 4 oz can of tomato paste instead of the tomato sauce.

This was a pretty good recipe. I used fresh spinach, as well as sauteed garlic & onion. I was a little unsure about using fresh spinach, but it worked fine. Mine was a little bit soupy, so we put it over the Asparagus Zucchini Rice recipe from this site. It made a suprisingly good combination.

I need to re-do this recipe a bit before 5-star rating. Definitely drain spinach on paper towel, as suggested by another user--frozen spinach never drains well and leaves dish a bit soupy and more spinachy flavor than spinach haters would tolerate. I also would like to try ricotta rather than cottage cheese; even if it's more calories, it is atkins friendly and will blend much better. The flavor was very good as is. I just want to work on the appearance and consistency of the final dish.

This was amazing. Huge hit at the dinner table. Swapped cottage cheese out for ricotta. Definitely will make this again and again!

Really good. My husband is not a huge fan of cottage cheese, so I used 1 c. of it and dotted the spinach mixture with 2 oz. of LF cream cheese. I used turkey sausage and all low-fat cheeses very successfully. Served over angel hair it was even better!
