Can I swap cottage cheese for ricotta in Manicotti? I use cottage cheese in lasagna...Seems like I could use it for the Manicotti if I drain it? It will be mixed with Italian sausage and herbs...

Anyone try it before?

I made manicotti recently and used cottage cheese mixed with cream cheese. It worked great.

then add 1 egg and some parmesan cheese.

I don't usually buy ricotta because it only comes in a big pagkage and I don't use it that often. If I buy the smallest tub of small curd cottage cheese, I can use some in cooking and DH will eat the rest.
