I gotta say, while I like jello (other than lime), I never heard of mixing cottage cheese in with it.

I remember shredded carrots in jello, and of course banana slices in red jello, but the cottage cheese is new to me. I like cottage cheese and I like jello, but would probably pass on this one.
Maybe I did pass on this one and that's why I never heard of it

Here's one I saved. You could make the dish & freeze for later on.

This has my vote, Charlie.

My Polish aunts added diced cubes of fried out salt pork and onion, and called it "kluski".

Some people mix the cheese (usually farmer's cheese, so you may want to drain the cottage cheese) with mashed potatoes and call it "lazy pierogi".

I also love mixing cottage cheese with minced fresh chives and seasoned salt, to make a dip for potato chips (also from my Polish aunts).

The place we stayed in for the Passover bought enough for the week; there were a lot of leftovers. The person in charge gave me the whole case to make lasagna for the next event, but I still have a lot left.

This is what I made last night. Since I got home pretty late last night, around 8 PM, my usual time, I did not wanted to go to store to buy more ingredients, or spend to much time for preparation. I went with what I know best, Russian cooking. Tvorozhnaja Babka, Cheese Babka, I do not know how translate that one.

Here is the recipe.

1 lb farmerís cheese
5 Table spoons sugar
1 t spoon salt
1-2 t spoon vanilla sugar (or vanilla extract)
3-4 eggs
2-4 Table spoons flour (depending on consistency of the cheese)
Raisins, craisins, nuts, chocolate chips are optional.


1-2 table spoons butter
3-4 table spoons farina or bread crumbs
Non-stick oil spray

I used one of those foil containers, the one that looked like a loaf of bread. Spray the inside of container and then sprinkle the farina or bread crumbs evenly around the mold, it will prevent the sticking of the Babka.

Mix everything together poor into container, cut the butter into small pieces and drop randomly on the top of the mixture. Bake at 350 deg, for about 40-45 minutes. Serve it at the room temperature.

Of course this morning one did not like the cheese, the other one did not like raisins, the third one did not like coffee chocolate chips. I loved it. It is a consistency of a heavy pudding (thatís the best description I can give), very sweet and yummy with cup of tea or coffee. I took pictures but forgot camera at home, Iíll add picks tomorrow.


P.S. The recipe calls for farmers cheese which is much more dense, less liquid, and the grain is very small, so I had to squeeze the cheese thru small colander, to make the grain smaller and to compensate for extra liquid I added more flour.

Lime jello, cottage cheese and diced pineapple... One of my favorites.

Pink stuff..
Cottage cheese, cool whip, strawberry jello, pineapple--just stir it all together.

Charlie, that looks absolutely beautiful - I really want to make one now!
Question: since you said that farmer's cheese is a much smaller curd than cottage, could this recipe be made with either small curd cottage cheese or ricotta cheese with similar results? Thank you!
