    I make my own paneer, and it is very different from cottage cheese or ricotta. This is meant to be a shortcut or cheap option, not a real ricotta. :)

    Yes cottage cheese is a good sub for ricotta.
    For those with an allergic reaction to casein in cheese then it is not a good sub.
    And depending on how the cottage cheese is processed, it can use rennet or not.
    For the price of a gallon of milk, one can make homemade cottage cheese and ricotta.
    See my recipe page.

Thank you for the information Pointsevenout but if they are like me they are just trying to give others an inexpensive easy, and tasty substitute to Ricotta.
