I'm not Italian (although my name suggests it is). I've never heard of cottage cheese being used in a pasta or dessert dish that had Italian origins. In fact, I don't think I've eaten cottage cheese, and I love cheese.
It's actually somewhat common for lasagna. I've had lasagna once with cottage cheese (I didn't make it), and didn't like it nearly as much. Was a little bland for my taste. So ricotta for the new recipe its is.
