Craving a creamy pasta dish that’s both delicious and packed with protein? This 3-Ingredient High Protein Creamy Pasta is a game-changer. With just cottage cheese, protein pasta, and your favorite red sauce, you can whip up a satisfying meal in no time. It’s the perfect way to indulge in comfort food while fueling your body with protein. Let’s dive into the recipe!


  • Cottage cheese (I use Good Culture)
  • Protein pasta (I use Banza or Trader Joes Red Lentil)
  • Marinara sauce (such as Raos or Carbone)
  • Salt


  • Blend the Sauce: In a blender or food processor, combine the cottage cheese and your favorite red sauce. Blend until smooth and creamy, ensuring that the cottage cheese is fully incorporated into the sauce. If desired, add salt to taste, depending on the saltiness of the cottage cheese and sauce.
  • Cook the Pasta: Cook the protein pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.
  • Combine Sauce and Pasta: Once the sauce is blended and the pasta is cooked, pour the creamy cottage cheese sauce over the cooked pasta. Use a spatula or spoon to gently toss the pasta until it is evenly coated with the sauce.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Transfer the creamy protein-packed pasta to serving plates or bowls. Garnish with fresh herbs, grated cheese, or crushed red pepper flakes, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy the creamy goodness!
