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

How to Make Cottage Pasta

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!
