Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. We accidentally used half of the amount of cottage cheese required, but it still turned out fine, just made less. I would make it again, but would try it with cheddar cheese instead for a bit more flavour. I think I would also add some chopped green onion to the filling. I prepared it yesterday and baked it today without any problem (just make sure to cover it all with sauce before putting it in the fridge).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loved it! My family loved it! I used chicken leftover from the day before that was slow-cooked in the crock pot. So delicious. I won't eat cottage cheese plain but this recipe was a good way to incorporate it.
