  • Just like you fix yours. My husband's aunt (who was born in Italy) told me that when she first moved to this small town in Florida she had to use cottage cheese and Swiss and powdered Parmesan because there was no ricotta, mozzarella or Parmesan. I have seen some old recipes that call for cottage cheese and I think that was the reason. We used her recipes in our restaurant, and from time to time someone would ask me what was the funny tasting stuff in the baked ziti, and we would tell them the ingredients, I often got a "you mean you don't use cottage cheese in it"-as if I didn't know what I was doing. So I guess it just depends on what you're used to.

  • I just use Mozz and it's so yummy!! Hubby won't let me put sour cream in anything!

  • I use cottage cheese instead of ricotta because ricotta can get grainy. Then mozzarella and provolone on top.

  • I use the same thing you do when baking mine. Doesn't hurt to try to mix it up a bit sometimes, either you'll create something you love, or you won't make it again =P
