I like cottage cheese in my lasagna, even better than I like ricotta!

Different strokes/cheeses...

It's a shame that you've written off all of Italian cuisine because you're tired of a single Italian-American dish. There's much more to it than just pasta and some form of red sauce.

Not just one dish. I know about Italian foods. Believe me I do. More than I care to know at this point in my life. I do like the Chickerina Soup. Also what is called erroneously the Wedding Soup. Italian veal cutlets, many meat dishes that do not involve pasta, escarole soup, eggplant parm, (my ultimate favorite dish) even if it wasn't Italian. A friend's mother makes a three bean salad. (Green beans, wax and Italian flat beans.) I don't know what she does to it, and I have never asked her how to make it, but I love it. I have the thought that if I do, I won't make it as good as she does. I love their Easter Pie. In fact, Pirate's MIL makes sure I get a whole small one for myself.

Need I go on?
