Family really enjoyed this - I thought it needed a bit more flavor--might season the spinach first next time - Overall a family pleaser! (I used shells instead of manicotti)
I am a newlywed that has been raised a healthy eater, unlike my husband. He grew up eating fried potatoes and gravy, so I knew cooking for him would be a little tricky once we tied the knot. This recipe was a huge hit in our house. He even took some of the leftovers to work the next day to eat for lunch. I have never used cottage cheese as a substitute for ricotta, so I was a little nervous, but it turned out great. I think the dish would have been a little bland if I didn't season the chicken beforehand. I baked it with parsley, basil, garlic, oregano, and a little red pepper before I chopped in a food processor. I spiced up the sauce, as well, by adding my own seasonings. I also used more garlic than it called for; I love garlic and always add more than necessary. It turned out delicious! Next time, I will probably use fresh spinach instead of frozen.
Awesome and Delicious
My family loved this meal. Even our 9 year old who won't eat anything remotely healthy loved this dish.
My 3-year-old daughter loved this recipe! Next time I might substitute fresh wilted spinach for the frozen.
Healthy and impressive!
My family enjoyed this lighter, healthier version. I did have to place foil over this dish and cook and extra 10 min so that the edges of the shells could get steamed and soften up; not b/c I didn't have enough sauce....I should have just distributed it more thoroughly. I may try to drain the cottage cheese a bit before I add it to the mix so that it does not come out with as much juice as it did with my first time cooking this dish. Overall, an excellent dish that I will add to my monthly recipe collection! Also, a wonderful dish to have for a pot luck........
This recipe was super easy to make, and very delicious! And my children LOVED it!
Very, very delicious. I loved the cottage cheese.
These are delicious. They take a while to make but they are totally worth it!
