This recipe is incredibly easy to make, so it’s perfect for those nights when you don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
Now, let's get cooking!
- In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the diced tomatoes, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Once the tomato mixture has simmered, remove it from the heat and transfer it to a blender. Add the cottage cheese to the blender and blend the mixture until it is smooth and creamy.
- Once the sauce is blended, return it to the saucepan and heat it over low heat. Be sure to stir it occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Taste the sauce and season it with salt and pepper as desired.
- Once the sauce is heated through, it's ready to serve. You can use it as a sauce for pasta, a dip for vegetables, or as a topping for grilled chicken or fish.
