Spinach Lasagna

This has been a great favorite of my family and friends. I started using cottage cheese because it was less expensive. I tried changing to the ricotta, when the prices became about the same and everyone liked the cottage cheese better. Be sure to drain the cottage cheese. I make this for my son for his B'day. I make 2 extra large pans. We eat that night and then I freeze the rest in single serving pieces in Seal a Meal bags.
