baked broccoli casserole

I'm not a cottage cheese person. At all. So when I heard this recipe called for cottage cheese, I almost didn't try it. But the cottage cheese mixes in with the flavors and bakes into the casserole and actually does not taste like you would think. This is a really good tasting dish.
