I really like this recipe. The second time I made it I added a layer of tomato sauce and sauteed onions and put sliced tomatoes on top before I baked it. The tomatoes give the dish an added kick that really worked. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I knew from the start that this recipe would need some doctoring up based on other reviews and the list of ingredients. But I don't like to review a recipe and say "Okay this recipe is great but first you have to do this this and this" and by the end you're nowhere near the original recipe. I also like to make a recipe from start to finish by the letter the first time I try it. Having said that even with a few changes/additions of spices this recipe is on the bland side. But that's what I was looking for!! I wanted something I could eat for breakfast that was on the savory side not spicy not offensive smelling when it was re-heated. This recipe was great for that. If you're looking for an impressive wowza side-dish look elsewhere but for what this is and for a change of routine for breakfast this was good. Read More

I will confess I added to this recipe to help enhance the flavor. I added the following: Garlic powder Thyme Parsley Parmesean cheese Tomato sauce (you can experiment with different flavors too) The additional ingredients really added dimension to this dish. Read More

This recipe was very nice made with fresh spinach. I think I will add a quarter cup of fresh parmesan next time though - it needed a little more zip! Read More

I was a little disappointed with this recipe. I normally like the combination of spinach and cottage cheese but in this dish they didn't blend very well which gave the spinach a bland flavor. I'd give it another shot but would add seasoning to the mixture (garlic powder maybe garlic salt) and double the crumb topping to enhance what's beneath. Read More

I agree with other reviewers that this is a great base to add a little to. I added onions garlic basil and chicken breast (already cooked) this time leaving it pretty bland for the little ones and we added more spices at the table. Read More

This is a base that has potential. I used fresh spinach then added mushrooms black olives and diced salami. For spices I added a tsp. of Italian seasoning a dash of red pepper flakes and served with shredded Parmesan on top. Read More

I love the cottage cheese in this recipe BUT way too many ingredients need to be added to give the dish enough flavor to be a favorite. i.e. Fresh grated parm cheese. You might as well just add cottage cheese to any of the other really good alfredo recipes. Read More

Pretty tasty. I sauteed the spinach in a little olive oil with minced onion plus I added a can of tomato sauce at the end. Pretty tasty I thought. But the kids weren't crazy about it. They ate it b/c they were hungry enough! Read More
