    Excellent, substituted cottage cheese with 30 oz rocatta cheese, fresh baby spinach (5 oz size) rinsed/drained/chopped, and 1 lb cooked/crumbled hot Italian sausage. Also for sauce added 1 cup cooked/sauted diced mushrooms, fresh ground red pepper, and if preferred as I chose to an additional 1-2 cups spaghetti sauce 1/2 way through baking time. Additionally opted to cook for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.
