Lasagna without ricotta or cottage cheese?

I planned on making lasagna for dinner, but I just realized I don't have cottage cheese or ricotta cheese... Should I still make it? (I have no way to get to a store to buy it)

  • MIL makes it that cottage cheese because FIL doesnt like it and no ricotta cheese cause no one knows what that is around here lol.

    but seriously, it will just be flatter and less of a mess

  • Maybe you will like it without it. My hubby likes lasagna but doesn't like ricotta so the next time I make it I will be leaving it out deliberately.

  • yup that would still be delicious. it's PASTA! the important part right here is SAUCE. if your sauce is good your pasta will be good! ... you can't go without ricott, tho or egg if you're using those no cook lasagn noodles...

  • Ricotta is my favorite part so I would say no way. But if your family likes it that way than you already have your answer.

  • I personally would not make it without the cottage cheese / ricotta layer, but there is no reason you couldn't do it. It would just be a layered pasta and tomato sauce dish. It would still work.

  • well if your sauce is just tomatoes there's a problem.

    don't be afraid to layer in some garlivcky herby chicken breasts... and veggies
