    If you tweak the recipe and leave out the parmesan, cut the spinach in 1/2, it'd be better - 5/27/08

    Ok, I made some changes too, to use the veggies I had on hand ~ adding broccoli, tomatoes and mushrooms ~ minus the spinach!. It was really good! I doubled it, so it made two. Yum! - 4/29/08

    I finally got around making this recipe today. I would add some garlic, my husband said that it was just too much spinach and I found it a little dry. But overall a good filling meal. - 4/15/07

    Delicious! Based on the reviews I used only one package of spinach and it was perfect. I also used non-fat ricotta and it still tasted great! - 7/14/10

    This was a really good recipe. I usually make with low fat milk, but the cottage cheese in this. Recipe works much better for moisture. In case you do not have a scale with grams, the cottage cheese is just a few spoonfuls shy of a 16 oz container. I used about 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 1/2 onion. - 2/4/10

    This was really good. I had to adjust it to what I had on hand, but still a winner. I will make it again and try the recipe exactly. - 4/13/08

    Nummy! No reason to just use frozen spinach, though, fresh would work too. - 3/17/07
