Just add some sliced zucchini to the lasagna and you've got "good eats".

looks good mama!

the cottage cheese reminded me of the dust up in the press this summer about "lasagna gate", with the attorney general of ny state.

andrew cuomo's mom lampooned his girlfriend for making lasagna using tomato soup and cottage cheese.

the best quote was "Tomato sauce and cottage cheese? Maron! No wonder he's so cranky."

I just saw on Ina yesterday where she layered her pasta at right angles to the layer before......... she said that this keeps the lasagna from sliding apart when cut and plated........ anybody do this.....

Do you notice any real difference using cottage cheese instead of ricotta? It's obviously different, but seems like texture would be similar, right?

I do, and it holds together MUCH better. Even when using pre-fab sheets, we make sure there are no overlapping "joints".

As for Cottage v. Ricotta. . .the Ricotta is a bit sweeter, holds its shape well, v the cottage cheese which is a lil more sour, and gets creamier, and runs a bit. It's nice for contrast.

Sounds like the recipe for Lazy Lasagna, except I think that it has ground meat in it.

I'd try this one, but I think that I'm old school.

I like & enjoy the challenge of making my own meat sauce and letting it slow cook for several hours until it is thick, tasty and the meat is very soft.

Texture is different.

Cottage cheese is in little lumps, while ricotta has a somewhat creamier almost grainy texture.

My mom used cottage cheese. I like to use ricotta.
