More About This Recipe
  • This lasagna soup recipe is served with ricotta cheese, which is the traditional cheese used in its namesake pasta dish. Ricotta originated in Italy when cheesemakers needed a way to use up the whey that’s a byproduct of the cheese-making process. It’s relatively smooth, slightly sweet and is popular in both savory Italian dishes like lasagna, manicotti and ravioli, and also sweet Italian treats like cannoli and cheesecake. Some people will opt to make their lasagna dishes with cottage cheese instead, mostly to save on fat and calorie counts. Cottage cheese is made from small curds of cheese, and is both lumpier and saltier than ricotta. So while you can substitute cottage cheese for ricotta in this recipe and in traditional lasagna recipes, it cannot be used as a substitute in sweet dishes like cheesecakes.
