  • I thought this was very good. I added basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary and garlic to the cottage cheese mixture since it already felt like I was making a lasagna.. I also used some graded Parmesan during the final baking stage.. - 9/12/09

  • way too much pasta, for my taste. i added a lot of parmesan cheese to compensate for it being really bland. still really good; will definitely make again but cut the pasta amount in half. - 4/6/09
