    I followed the advice of a few reviewers (and my own instincts) and made a few changes: I cut the spinach in half and the breadcrumbs in half; I added 2 eggs to make it cuttable; I skipped the dill and poultry seasoning and instead added 1 teaspoon minced garlic; I also substituted 15 ounces of ricotta for the 8 ounces of cottage cheese.  -  07 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Will definitely make it again, but with some alterations. I used 1/2 the spinach so it stayed good and cheesy, but I should have cut the breadcrumbs too (way too much). Next time I'm adding garlic and taking out the poultry seasoning (made it taste like stuffing to me). Note: tastes great the day you make it, but loses its appeal the next day as leftovers.  -  09 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked it..but changed it a bit- used mozzarella instead of feta, omitted the dill and poultry seasoning and added four eggs to make it 'cuttable' ...it was delicious! oh, and I used frozen spinach without any problems, I just made sure that I defrosted it and squeezed all of the water out.  -  26 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
