      After making home homemade fresh cheeses I was going to reply that the ricotta cheese and cottage cheese were similar, but they aren’t. Difference between Ricotta and Cottage Cheese. Growing up I don’t think ricotta was sold in my local grocery store, so for me, we always used cottage cheese. I am going to guess it maybe like that for some people still. I understand that maybe no true Italian would ever use cottage cheese in this recipe. I am not going to change the designation of this post. I appreciate your passion for Italian style recipes!
