This is an awesome meal! I'm picky about my pasta, but this is just absolutely great. The unique cheese sauce just absolutely made this great! I used heavy cream instead of light cream, because it was all I had on hand. The gouda cheese I had was in slices, so I cut the slices into smaller sections before I tossed them into the sauce. I wasn't able to find "cream-style" cottage cheese, so I just used small curd. Also, not quite sure which size "carton" would be recommended, so I used 1/2 of the one I had. Also, the mozzarella slices I put on top of the dish made it more difficult to cut through come dinner time. I think next time I"ll use shredded mozzarella. I needed to cover mine with foil towards the end, also, for fear it'd burn. Really and truly, this is an awesome meal! Thanks for sharing it! :)
I changed out sauteed shrimp for the ground beef, and added mushrooms in with the onions. I also added lemon to the cream and cream cheese I pureed the cottage cheese and egg, to make it pourable, and added parsley. I used Cheddar and Gruyere cheeses. We loved it! Thank you for sharing!
I made a variation on this recipe to use ingredients I had on hand and was very, very pleased with the results. Instead of celery and onion, I used fresh spinach that I chopped finely in the food processor. I used havarti instead of gouda and grated swiss instead of mozzarella. I had ricotta so I used that instead of the cottage cheese. I was also lazy and used oven ready lasagna noodles. A bit more oregano, lots of garlic, a touch of pepper... Even with all these changes, it turned out just great! What a wonderful change from the regular lasagna!
Made this with no meat for my first Sunday Dinner, fed 30 people and everyone raved about this recipe....I followed the recipe but used fat free half and half....great taste!
OOOOMMMMMGGGGGG This was amazing! We love lasagna, and this was a great change! I used small curd cottage cheese, and heavy cream, and sausage rather than beef and it was amazing! Next time I'm thinking about trying it with chicken and penne noodles. YUMMY!!! Thanks so much!
We loved this. Good creamy sauce and very versatile. I used shredded chicken instead of the beef, and made the sauce over penne pasta. I also added fresh broccoli to the onion/celery. I used gouda and cheddar, but only 1/2 cup of each and omitted the mozzarella since I didn't bake it. yummy sauce. Next time I might make it into lasagna!!
I really enjoyed this recipe.. very rich delicious sauce. Next time I won't be making this in lasagne form. I will use penne. My main reasoning for that is just personal taste. I thought it would have been better with out the mozzerella and cottage cheese, just the sauce cooked on the stove. My main veggie was Mushrooms. I think mushrooms and white wine go great together so that was my reasoning for that.
Awesome! I ladled some red sauce on each serving. My guests said it was the best they've ever had! Thanks much!
This was AMAZING!! It's so different from any other lasagna and definitely restaurant quality. I'm a new wife and a not so experienced chef and it truly wasn't hard to make either!
