This recipe is great for lunch or as a side dish.
I love this dish. It is filled with vegetables & cheese. What could be better?
I love having this with a salad for lunch or as a side dish with fish. It also makes a nice dish for a buffet as it is easily doubled and baked in a 9×13 pan!
Just make sure that you drain the spinach really well…this is easily done by putting the defrosted spinach in a colander and press it down with a fork getting all of the liquid out. IF your cottage cheese is watery drain it as well. if you don’t it just adds liquid to this dish which could end up being a bit watery.
