    Yummy! Great "comfort" food!
    We ADDED: salt, pepper, & Italian seasonings to the ground meat, and parsley to the cottage cheese mixture.
    SUBSTITUTED: ground chicken for turkey, and
    Pillsbury reduced-fat cresent rolls (4 triangles/half a tube-put in a square pan) for Bisquick.
    OMITTED: tomato - 1/15/09

    Very good. I used a pre-made frozen pie crust ( not too many more calories). I also used fat free ricotta cheese instead of cottage (on hand). It's a keeper, but it needs tabasco or something to spice it up. Next time I think I'll add green chilis and chipotle tabasco sauce - 2/5/09

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe and so did my family!! Only thing different I did was add taco seasoning to the meat and added 2 cups of cottage cheese along with two eggs for the topping over the meat. It was beyond moist and oh sooo delicious!!! - 1/7/10

    Tried this recipe last night - and although it was different than I expected, it was really good! I made a whole pie and since it's just me, I dished it out into single servings and froze it for easy meals during the week. Thanks! - 1/31/09

    This recipe was very good. I would use a low fat pastry recipe that rolls out easier than trying to roll out bisquick which seemed to be harder. You can keep the calories the same if you are careful. Thought MISSABELLA had a great idea by using the Pillsbury Reduced Fat Cresent Rolls as dough. - 2/1/09

    This was delicious! I have to say next time I'll have to double the amount for the crust since my was just too thin but the whole thing was delicious! I don't like cottage cheese at all but you couldn't even tell it was in there. - 1/28/09

    We made this last night without the cottage cheese and it was SO GOOD! We added fresh salsa on top instead of the tomatoes and it was great - I'll definately make this again! - 1/28/09

    This is GREAT! My husband very rarely likes my cooking but he LOVES this dish! The first time I made it, I forgot to put the tomatoes on top and it was still delicious. When I did it right, though, the cooked tomatoes were scrumptious and kept the cheese from getting too dry or crusty. A+ recipe - 2/1/09

    Our family really enjoyed this dish. My husband is not a fan of ground turkey but he still liked it. I added more spices to the meat as well and have to say the tomatoes on top were awesome. - 2/10/09

    YUM!!! My husband doesn't eat onion and (thinks) he hates ground turkey, so I made two pies, one ground turkey with onion, and the other with ground beef no onion. Only problem I had was, I added some drained Rotel and it made my crust soggy on bottom. But it was still good!! Family loved it! - 2/2/09

    This recipe was AWESOME - it was so great, I invited my mom in, and my housekeeper, and they both agreed it was great and took home a copy.

    Waytago Turnbo, with recipes like this, it's much easier to enjoy the food that's good for you! Thanks so much. - 1/30/09

    My Daughter made this for our family this evening. It was great, but like some others have said when using ground turkey it does need more spices. Will, make this again. - 2/5/09

    I love this! I have made it with both ground turkey and lean ground beef and liked it both ways. I always have trouble with the bisquick and might try the recommendation of using crescent rolls instead. Definitely a keeper though!! - 2/5/09

    Very good and filling. I added 5X more garlic and a dry seasoning from Costco to the turkey meat for more flavor based on previous reviews of the recipe. Served with homemade fries! - 2/3/09

    Next time I make this, I will add more seasoning- like a taco seasoning to the turkey- and serve with sliced avacados and a wedge of lettuce. We also added tabasco sauce to give it a bit more punch. With the changes, I will make this again. - 2/3/09

    I usually spice it up too but wasn't sure what all I should put on this recipe builder.

    I loved this recipe, and so did my family! I wasn't sure how it would turn out, I never thought to mix cottage cheese with the egg, but not only was it inexpensive to make, but it tasted DELICIOUS! - 1/29/09

    I thought it was pretty good. It was the first time I tried the ground turkey and it was a lot better than I thought it would be. Next time I think I will mix diced tomatoes into the turkey to give it more taste though. - 1/28/09
