Cook's tip for cottage cheese spaghetti: Making a sauce from cottage cheese means you can get all of the creamy texture of dairy into this pasta dish, whilst keeping the fat content low.


  • 100g Cottage cheese
  • 250ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 150g wholewheat spaghetti
  • (or veggie alternative) 25g parmesan, finely grated
  • black peppercorns, ground to make ½ tsp
  • a small bunch flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped


  • STEP 1

    Tip the cottage cheese, milk, cornflour, garlic granules and a little seasoning into a high-powered blender or food processor, and whizz until completely smooth. Pour into a frying pan and bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce until the consistency of pouring cream.

  • STEP 2

    Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water following pack instructions, drain well, reserving some of the cooking water, then tip into the sauce in the frying pan with the parmesan and black pepper. Toss well, adding some of the reserved pasta water if it’s a little claggy. Divide between two plates and finish with the parsley.
