Creamy Cottage Cheese Lasagna
My Grandma was the sweetest lady. She would do anything for her kids and her grandkids- and now that my kids are getting older, I have really started to wish they could have met my amazing grandma who died when I was just 13. I tell my kids about her all the time- and we like to talk to her in heaven.
As my kids grow, I have tried to incorporate more and more of my mom and my grandma’s favorite recipes for them to enjoy. While there are quite a few family recipes my kids turn their nose up at, they can’t get enough of my sweet Grandma’s Date Nut Bread and this delicious, comforting Cottage Cheese Lasagna.
My Grandmother was about the furthest thing from Italian- her family is a very stereotypically large Irish Catholic family with some ancestry possibly extending back to Germany- which isn’t exactly a background you would equate to killer lasagnas. But man, her lasagnas were the absolute best! Tons of cheese and delicious layers of meat and vegetables- they were amazing.
I’ve been making lasagna (with cottage cheese) my whole life- which initially horrified my husband. I’ve turned him into a convert though- he really loves both ways now- but my kids are the ones who really flip for this lasagna. Even my picky son, who we battle with at almost every meal, shouts “yessss!! woo! ITS LASAGNA TIME!!!! oh yea, oh yea! “. So cute! And even more special that my son loves my grandma’s recipe.
