I swapped out the ricotta for cottage cheese in these cheesy lasagna rollups and no one in my family noticed! Cottage cheese has a creamy texture similar to ricotta cheese, so it can be used as a substitute for ricotta cheese in many dishes without sacrificing texture or flavor. Compared to ricotta cheese, it’s generally lower in calories and fat and higher in protein, which helps keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.
