This faux lasagna replaces the noodles with grilled zucchini. While it is not a "real" lasagna, it definitely helps with the craving for it. Comment on the cottage cheese: I live in Mexico and where I am there is no ricotta cheese. I created this work around with cottage cheese blended with a little cream cheese and I think it works well. If you have whole milk ricotta, by all means use it. I am not sure how that would impact the nutrition info, but I imagine not very much.
