Not a traditional cheesecake, as it contains cottage cheese in place of cream cheese. Much lighter and healthier than cheesecake! Easy to put together. Makes a great summer dessert! Cooking time is chill time in refrigerator.

If you love panna cotta but cringe at the high fat and calories, this is a great alternative! Pineapple-infused, citrus flavors the cottage cheese and it is a nice, light Summer dessert. I used a "lite" whipped topping: an extra-creamy flavor would add richness, but I liked this recipe as it is. Thanks for sharing it, Rottmom! 'll definitely make it again. Made for PAC Fall 09.
