Very good but too saucy. I left out half of the spaghetti sauce mixture, and it still had plenty. I didn't need to drain the cottage cheese either, and it turned out great.
You need to put a Daisy ricotta cheese on the market because Italian food is never made with cottage cheese. I love Daisy products but not in lasagna.
I have made lasagna with ricotta cheese and with cottage cheese. I honestly cannot tell the difference, and since cottage cheese is cheaper than ricotta...
Someone wrote that they had a mess when she drained the cottage cheese. Here's how I do it with no mess at all. I line my mesh strainer with cheesecloth. Then I put the lined strainer into a bowl large enough to hold it. I put the cottage cheese into the lined strainer, then put a smaller bowl on top. I gently press down on the smaller bowl, forcing the liquid out through the cheesecloth and strainer into the large bowl. This has always worked great for me with no mess at all. Good luck! I'm looking forward to trying this recipe. I love lasagna but finding a recipe that stands up when you serve it has been my problem.
oh my. it's true, some people do use cottage cheese in their lasagna. maybe Daisy can make a ricotta and update this recipe, it will be a 1000x better.
Made this for a family get together, everyone raves how about how good it was. I substituted cottage cheese with Rigatta cheese and substituted mild sausage in Lou of ground beef.
I made this for my family last night and they loved it. I used the exact ingredients and it came out perfectly, the recipe was very easy to follow and I will make this for my next dinner party. Thanks for sharing, Denise
Good morning! I made this Easy Cheesy Lasagna a couple of weeks ago and it was grrrreat. The only problem I had was with the cottage cheese, draining the liquid off. But the mess was well worth it. Thanks a million.
Can I substitute cottage cheese for ricotta cheese?
This recipe was delicious and flavorful. The taste is better when you use the better quality sauce Bertolli and fresh homemade noodles. Only two layers are needed. Use fresh cottage cheese and you will not have to worry about draining the cottage cheese.
Thanks for your review.
