Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

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

1
Prepare pasta according to package directions to al dente tenderness.
2
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.
3
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!
