      This is a very good recipe. I forgot to put in the cottage cheese, only realised it when it was in the oven for a few seconds. Oops! I liked it a lot anyway. My husband said he would like it again but with less cinnamon. I didn't think the cinnamon was too much, but if you are someone not used to cinnamon/meat combination or have picky children, you might want to use a little less.

      I thought this was good and had good flavor, was easy to make, and well worth the effort. However, I think that 1/2 to 3/4 of the bechamel sauce would have been enough -- that part was a bit overwhelming, in my opinion. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4.
