- 3 bunches of purple sprouting cut into stems and leaves
- 6 rashers of collar bacon diced
- 1 wedge of strong Cheddar cheese grated
- 235g cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons single cream
- 400g pasta
- Salt and pepper
I discovered that heating cottage cheese with a stronger cheese is a really quick and simple way to make cheese sauce. I only add the cream to thin the sauce down a little.
The elegant leaves of the broccoli almost act as spoons to catch the cheese sauce. It was a warming, hearty filling way to make best of this vegetable. If you have any cheese sauce left it’s great for dunking crusty bread.
