Until this recipe I had not heard of Cottage Cheese being used in a pasta sauce, especially not a red-tomato sauce, and boy was I missing out! Adding cottage cheese to this sauce adds the perfect amount of creaminess to round out the flavor and texture of this sauce.
While there is something magical about the All-Day spaghetti sauce where the entire house is filled with the aroma of sauce stewing away, it is equally delightful to have a pasta sauce recipe that you know will taste great, and can be made in a relatively short amount of time. Mama T’s Pasta Sauce is sure to be a crowd please-er day-in and day-out. Add Mama T’s Meatballs to this recipe and you’ll never want store bought again!
Double the batch and stick some in the freezer for a quick easy meal on a busy night!
