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.
