I don't know why cottage cheese is used instead of Ricotta cheese. Cottage cheese to me is more of a substitute for cream cheese (same type of flavor). I used Ricotta cheese and it tasted wonderful. Also, after reading another review, I tried baking this on a rack to drain the mushrooms. It didn't work because I believe the mushrooms need to be on the pan for the full heat of the pan in order to cook. I wound up putting them in the microwave for a minute each because the mushrooms weren't cooked and then put them under the broiler with the sauce & cheese as indicated but this time without that rack. They did release a lot of juice, but I just poured it off. It was fine.
1 more thing: if you change the serving amt, do not change the eggs. i.e. if you want 6 servings, the "calculator" will triple all the ingredients. Do not put in 3 eggs. You still only need 1 egg. When I make regular lasagna I only use 1 egg regardless of whether I use 1, 2 or 3 lbs of ricotta. It's just there for the texture. 3 eggs would be FAR too much.
Thanks for a great alternative to using pasta. My neighbor is disabled and I cook for her twice a month as a treat and a favor. She is on a gluten free diet & I was getting tired of just baking chickens with sides of rice & veggies. What a wonderful alternative this was. She LOVED it!! Thank you for posting it. Without the cottage cheese, I rate this 5 stars. It's a very delicious recipe!!!
