If you don't like Ricotta cheese, then you can substitute Cottage Cheese, which has more zip and flavor. Cream Cheese can also be used but it will change the texture of the filling. Mozzarella, Parmesan and Ricotta are the 3 standards used as pasta filling but feel free to experiment if you don't particularly like one of them. Substitute Jaarlsburg, Guyere, Provolone, Swiss, any kind of cheddar for the cheese(s) you don't like which are in the original recipe. There's no right/wrong way. Let your own taste buds make the right decision for you. Unsure? Mix up a big spoonful (1/4 cup)of the cheeses which you have on hand and plan to use. Warm it up in the microwave so everything melts slowly together and then taste it after it cools down enough to safely do so. Does it need more of one cheese and less of another?

I would definitely make my own marina sauce. It is so easy to make and tastes so much better than jar sauce.

Rachel, you could use cottage cheese maybe? And for the others who are worried about the mushrooms - you can sub sausage or ground beef - works just as well. Also, can add the meat and still keep the mushrooms. Have done that and it is delicious.

For a family that does not care for ricotta cheese, what do you suggest in its place?

@ Alice: Any recipe is just a jumping off point. Nothing says you have to follow them to a T. I don't see any reason that a half pound of browned and drained Italian sausage can't be substituted for the mushrooms.
