Herbed Stuffed Tomatoes
The fat content of cottage cheese varies widely. Creamed cottage cheese can have as much as 4% fat, low-fat cottage cheese ranges from 1% to 2% fat and dry curd cottage cheese, made without added cream, has less than 1/2% fat. In this recipe, the 1% cottage cheese adds a little richness to the filling without adding a lot of fat.
