    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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 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

    We used fat free ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese and also reduced-fat crescent rolls for the crust. This recipe was just okay, it actually was really watery and didn't have much flavor. Probably won't make again. - 2/25/13

    This dish is easy and delicious. We absolutely loved it! It's hard to stop eating it though so be careful. I did tweak the recipe a bit. It would be a bit bland without spices. I added more garlic, a little salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and chopped tomatoes. I would try ricotta next time too. - 1/30/09

    So, I improvised and used 92% lean ground beef to the recipe and it was fabulous!! I am not a fan of cottage cheese but it worked beautifully in this recipe. My only complaint is that it's a little dry on day two for leftovers however that is probably due to my elevation in Colorado Springs. - 1/14/09
