"I did something fun with this recipe. I took 1 lb. of ground lamb, some chopped onion and garlic....cooked and drained it. I put it UNDERNEATH this entire recipe. It turned it into a Greek Shepard's pie. The family loved it!"

"This casserole is a great meatless option for dinner. I have made it a couple times and have added a bit of dill to make it more like traditional spanakopita."

"For those of you who thought this needed something, try using a flavored feta like garlic/herb or sun-dried tomato."

"i found this recipe to be bland- I liked the texture and base flavor..I'll make it again but with some tweaking-maybe double the feta, reduce the cottage..needs spicing."
