"Made this for my family last night and instead of making it in a 9X13 pan I put it into 2 foil cake pans and put one in the freezer for later. Everyone loved it!"

"Quite tasty. Had to improvise a bit because I didn't have all the ingredients. Had to use cottage cheese and sour cream, ground turkey, and had to make tomato sauce from canned tomatoes."
