Carolyn's gelatin cheesecake, five minute Jell-O salad and fruited gelatin and cottage cheese are some simple recipes that use Jell-O and cottage cheese. These recipes are available on FoodNetwork.com, SixSistersStuff.com and KraftRecipes.com.

To make Carolyn's gelatin cheesecake, place 1 12-ounce container of low-fat cottage cheese in a blender. Make 2 0.3-ounce boxes of strawberry-flavored Jell-O using 1 cup of boiling water and 1 cup of cold water. Immediately add the liquid Jell-O to the cottage cheese and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into two pre-made graham cracker crusts and refrigerate until set.

Once the Jell-O has set, slice one pint of strawberries and layer the fruit on top of the Jell-O in the pie crusts. Make one additional box of strawberry Jell-O and pour the liquid over the strawberries. Return the pies to the refrigerator until the strawberry layer has set. Garnish with whipped topping and additional sliced fruit.

Six Sister's Stuff's five minute Jell-O salad is a quick and simple dessert recipe with Jell-O and cottage cheese. For this recipe, mix 1 8-ounce container of whipped topping and 1 4-ounce box of Jell-O until the Jell-O powder is fully dissolved. Fold in 1 12-ounce container of cottage cheese, 1/2 pound of sliced strawberries and 1 sliced banana. Serve chilled.
