Indulge your creamy, carb-y pasta desires with my Healthy Cottage Cheese Alfredo recipe! Simply made with just 10 ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes, this easy high-protein variation has all the deliciousness of traditional alfredo sauce with none of the guilt. 


  • 8 oz pasta
  • 1 cup cottage cheese, full fat / whole milk
  • 3/4  cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • Salt 
  • Black pepper


  1. First cook the pasta according to the package directions. Set aside.
  2. Next add the cottage cheese, whole milk, parmesan cheese, cornstarch, garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add the blended cottage cheese mixture to a large pan on the stove over low heat. Heat slowly until warmed to your liking, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the alfredo sauce. Toss to combine evenly. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Serve and enjoy! I like to add extra fresh parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, and cracked black pepper on top.
