    1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, eggs and feta cheese until well blended. Brush melted butter onto one sheet of filo at a time, and layer them in the bottom of a 22x33cm baking dish until you have 7 sheets. Let the filo sheets rest up against the sides of the dish as well. Spread the cheese mixture over the filo layers, then repeat the process with 7 more sheets, tucking in the sides around the edges.
    3. Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown and crisp. Cut into squares and serve at room temp or warm.
