10 Min


1 box
spaghetti, or pasta of choice, 8 oz.
24 oz
cottage cheese, small curd
1 1/2 c
parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp
garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp
italian herb blend (or use 1/2 tsp each oregano, rosemary & thyme)
2 Tbsp
butter (margarine okay, but butter's best!)
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Prepare pasta according to package directions to al dente tenderness.
In medium bowl, mix cottage cheese, herbs, salt & pepper (to taste), and 1 cup parmesan cheese until just incorporated, unless you want the curds smoothed out. In that case, blend the mixture with a fork until smooth. You could also puree in a blender. Personally, I prefer to leave most of the curds intact.
Drain pasta. Dot with butter and mix to melt butter. Plate the pasta and cover with cottage cheese mixture. Top with additional parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
