Healthier Alfredo with Cottage Cheese

I’ve been making healthier versions of pasta dishes by replacing heavy cream with cottage cheese. You can find my other recipe of a Healthier Macaroni and Cheese here. Alfredo sauce is delicious but if you’re looking for a lighter and lower calorie version then try the recipe below! It’s also quick and extremely easy to make! 😊

Yield: 2 servings
Time: 10 minutes


  • 4 oz pasta, cooked and drained according to instructions
  • 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Freshly grinded pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp freshly chopped basil
  • ¼ tsp freshly chopped parsley


  1. In a small pan, use enough olive oil to coat the pan and fry the sliced garlic over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the edges start to become a golden color. Take the pan off the heat and put aside.
  2. In a blender, blend the cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, milk, cornstarch and sea salt until smooth.
  3. Pour sauce in a pot and cook over low heat for five minutes. Add cooked garlic, pepper, basil, and parsley after the sauce has been heated.
  4. Combine cooked pasta and sauce until it is mixed well and serve immediately.
