1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Mix cottage cheese, cream cheese, eggs, and butter in a mixer. Add desired cooked vegetables and the shredded cheese.
Lay one sheet of fillo dough into a greased 16×8 rectangular pan. Brush with melted butter. Lay another sheet and brush that with butter. Keep layering until there are 4 sheets in the pan. Spread 1/2 of the vegetable/cheese mixture into the pan on top of the fillo sheets. Add another 4 sheets of fillo, brushing melted butter between each sheet. Spread the other half of the vegetable/cheese mixture over the second fillo layer. Layer another 4 sheets of fillo over the mixture, brushing melted butter over each layer and over the top layer.
