Cottage Cheese Cream Sauce over Spaghetti

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Eggs, Peppers, Sauces, Cheese

 Ingredients List

  • 6 ounces of spaghetti or linguine noodles
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup Pecorino Romano cheese (Parmesan would work well, too)
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper


1. Cook the spaghetti per the instructions on the package, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water for later use. Drain pasta and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the cottage cheese, egg yolk, and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the reserved pasta water and reduce by almost half of its original volume, then whisk in the cottage cheese mixture. Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk mixture until smooth and the cheese has melted. Return the cooked pasta to the saucepan, tossing to coat. Serve with additional grated cheese and more black pepper, if desired. Oh, and marvel at the fact that there is no cream in sight :)
