Cottage Cheese Pasta Sauce

White pasta sauce, like alfredo, can pack in the calories and help you pack on the pounds. Give a lower calorie version a try by using cottage cheese as the main ingredient. Just make sure to buy low sodium cottage cheese (5% or less) for a healthier sauce. 

Recipe from James Briscione and The Institute of Culinary Education 


1 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup low-fat milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Combine the cottage cheese and milk in a food processor and blend until smooth.

 

2. Transfer to a sauté pan and warm over medium-low heat. When hot, stir in the Parmesan and cooked pasta. Serve immediately.
