Reduced-Fat Creamy Pesto Dip
When the solution (low-fat cottage cheese) turns into the problem (grainy texture), what then?
Why This Recipe Works
Low-fat cottage cheese and low-fat sour cream made a rich-tasting, creamy base for our Reduced-Fat Creamy Pesto Dip that tasters loved. We pureed the low-fat cottage cheese with boiling water to eliminate its graininess and improve the dip’s creamy texture. Assertive Parmesan cheese added bold flavor to our Reduced-Fat Creamy Pesto Dip.
