Creamy Pineapple Salad

This is the perfect side dish.  Creamy and delicious!  You can eat it by itself, as dessert, or with some yummy barbecue.  YUM!  Enjoy!
-1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
-1 (3 oz) package lemon gelatin
-1 cup heavy cream
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 cup 4% cottage cheese
Drain the pineapple juice in a measuring cup (it should give you at least 1/4 cup juice).  To that, add enough water to make 1 1/3 cups of liquid.  Pour that into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, remove from heat and add the gelatin.  Stir until dissolved, then refrigerate until softly set, like this:
While the gelatin is setting, whip the cream until peaks form.  Add the sugar and beat until well incorporated.
Fold in the gelatin, then add the drained pineapple and cottage cheese.  Mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.  Enjoy!
