Use Cottage Cheese as an Easy White Sauce

The white sauce that is used in au gratin potatoes, homemade macaroni and cheese, and casseroles cooked by "foodies" can be remedied by one ingredient:
Cottage cheese!

Just like adding Parmesan cheese to thicken spaghetti sauce, you are adding cheese. It is light in flavor, so it will not overpower your sauce. And it doesn't get as stringy like Parmesan can. It stirs in quite easily. Add to whatever thickness you would like.

I have made easy Hamburger Helper dishes using the cottage cheese. They are thick and delicious. And even my friends and family that don't like cottage cheese; I am sneaky and don't even let them know. They like it!

Of course, please don't give this idea to your lactose intolerant friends.

What about the texture? Does it melt down all the way or does it remain lumpy?

I have not had it become lumpy like regular cheddar. Like I mentioned it turns into a sauce.
