Sweet Potato and Cottage Cheese Tart

Sweet Potato and Cottage Cheese Tart

The only way I ate cottage cheese growing up was with salt and pepper or in my mom’s lasagna. That’s the only way I thought you could eat it. One day, however, that all changed.

One sunny winter day, my husband and I met his Aunt for a day of downhill skiing. We had packed our lunches and after a morning of hitting the slopes we took a much needed lunch break in the chalet. That’s when his Aunt pulled out her lunch of cottage cheese with mixed berries. Cottage cheese with something sweet? I never would have thought!
