This family favorite recipe came from my grandmother. She raised five kids and knew how to make economical, filling meals. I always use 90 percent lean hamburger and I add a half cup of Parmesan cheese to the cottage cheese filling when I make it.
Try experimenting with your own family’s favorite flavors. Try adding a can of Rotel tomatoes and chili to the meat mixture, or perhaps add a teaspoon of chopped thyme.
