Unique & interesting recipe. I loved this recipe for the fresh herbs I could use from the garden & cottage cheese used in place of cream. We don't like our pasta real creamy so I found the sauce was enough for twice as much pasta for us. I didn't have green onions or lemon zest so I used chives & lemon pepper instead. Very tasty & enjoyed thoroughly, thanks for sharing.
