“I learned this recipe from my friend that is a little bit older than me and from TN! You will love it if you like cottage cheese and cream cheese, the ingredients sound a little crazy but try it and i promise you will love it! Just prepare like you would regular Italian lasagna! Cook your noodles till al dente and cook spinach in microwave and drain well.”
