Recipe by ElleFirebrand
From the February/March 2002 issue of Light & Tasty magazine. And a tiny dash of ground nutmeg as a mysterious "secret" ingredient. Try adding pre-cooked chicken or veggies (cooked asparagus, broccoli, roasted red peppers, cooked mushrooms) for something different. Also, maybe substitute some of the cottage cheese for cream cheese or sour cream. Whole wheat fettucine will also add slightly more fiber.
- 2 eggs
- 4 cups fat-free cottage cheese
- 1⁄2 cup egg substitute
- 6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 8 ounces fettuccine, cooked and drained
