Made this for the second time last night. Used a combination of peeled butternut and acorn squash, as well as store-bought, full-fat cottage cheese. It was a big hit with the family, even my dad who normally prefers to see a conventional protein on his plate. The only real change I made was to serve it on a bed of arugula dressed with a little more olive oil and lime juice. We all agreed the bright bitterness was a perfect foil for the sweet roasted squash. Will be making it again this season for sure!

Can I use a store bought cottage cheese?
Sarah J. December 14, 2016
Yes! I'd use a full-fat, great-tasting cottage cheese—or a fresh ricotta (that might be more similar to freshly made cottage cheese, actually!).

If you need a recommendation, I've become addicted to Cabot Full Fat cottage cheese. It's the creamy BOMB . . .!!

This was great and different! As a vegetarian, beans and eggs get old when it comes to protein. I used a small butternut squash and a large sweet potato and the veggies made at least six servings as an entree- I used store bought cottage cheese because I'm lazy :)

Can the cottage cheese be made with a non dairy milk?
Sarah J. November 6, 2016
Hi Erin, I haven't tried making it with non-dairy milk, but I have found some recipes online for non-dairy cottage cheese: http://www.glutenfreeandmore.com/recipes/dairy_free_cottage_cheese-2285-1.html and http://www.veganfamilyrecipes.com/vegan-cottage-cheese/. I assume they produce pretty different results! There are also non-dairy cottage cheeses available for purchase—so you could use a storebought option instead, Hope that helps!
