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.

This was so very good. We love pasta dishes at Greek restaurants with the nutmeg, but this is the first time I've made something like this at home. The flavors were all great, and this is such a nice change to put on the table. Although we enjoy the flavor of the nutmeg, I think I will cut down on it a little the next time I make it. The nutmeg seemed a little overpowering on the first day. By the 2nd day the flovors had blending together nicely, and the nugmeg had mellowed out a bit.

This is a really tasty recipe - even though I forgot the beef (rummaging through grocery bags muttering "where's the beef?") and substituted 2 pounds of shredded mushrooms - sauteed in 2 T olive oil so as not to be wet when onion was added to be sauteed further. This is a dish that is even better the second day & the 3rd as well) and it doubled very well. Next time I make it will be for friends - with beef or not! I plan to freeze one for another time (we ate it all over three days this go 'round! Thank you for the yum recipe Sage!

This is one of the family's favorites! I was quite skeptical when I saw the recipe but I'm so glad I took a chance! It smells great while cooking and even my picky 2 year old loves it. If I could remember to start it earlier and do it in stages I'm sure it would be a bit less messy, but that won't stop me from making it. Thanks!

This is so good and different! I followed most things to a "t;" the only thing I changed was the sauce--I left out the butter and used wheat flour (also used wheat pasta). I added some cinnamon and garlic powder to the sauce, too, and it was great! Served it with Greek garlic bread and spinach with Greek dressing. Thanks for the recipe!

Really good! I was looking for something a little different for dinner, and this fit the bill! The cinnamon and nutmeg especially give this a refreshingly different taste and the thick, creamy sauce on top is quite tasty. I did have a little trouble serving this neatly, as you'll see in the photos, but it tasted good anyway!
