I also enjoy this recipe and have a way to reduce the calories/sugar. Drain the pineapple well. reserve liquid, use regular cherries with light syrup. Drain the syrup, heat and thicken with cornstarch to pie filling consistency, sweeten with your favorite no sugar sweetener-I like utrisweet. Put back together and cool overnight. I also might drain the fat free cottage cheese if it has a lot of fluid. I put the cottage cheese through the blender and add 1 small package of vanilla or cheesecake flavored sugar free pudding, add back pineapple juice a spoon at a time IF the beaten cottage cheese is too thick, and use the no sugar jello at this point. Then fold all together well. I use the pudding to make sure it all thickens well, since sugar usually helps thickening and we are leaving it out of this. No one really notices the differences and everyone likes it.
