I was looking for a new way to use Cottage Cheese in my supper and came with the idea of stuffing a red pepper with it.
Total time to prepare 40 minutes.
Ingredients (makes 1 serving or 2 if using as a side)
1 average sized sweet Red Pepper
1/2 cup reduced sodium Cottage Cheese
1 medium sized Tomato (diced small)
1 clove Garlic (crushed)
2 tbsp chopped fresh Cilantro
Black Pepper to taste
1- Preheat your oven to 375F
2- Mix the diced tomatoes, crushed garlic, cilantro, cottage cheese and black pepper
3- Cut the red pepper lengthwise, remove seeds and wash
4- Fill the red pepper halves with the cheese stuffing
5- Bake for 30 minutes.
