    This flavorful Italian bread turns any family-style dinner into company fare.


    • 1 Pkg. Active Dry Yeast
    • 1/4 Cup Warm Water (105°-115°F)
    • 1 Cup Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
    • 1 Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
    • 2 Tbsp. Fresh Basil, Chopped
    • 1 Tbsp. Oil-Packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes
    • 2 Tsp. Granulated Sugar
    • 2 Large Cloves Garlic, Minced
    • 1/2 Tsp. Ground White Pepper
    • 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
    • 2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
    • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese, Grated


    1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until foamy, 5 - 10 minutes.
    2. In a small saucepan, slowly warm cottage cheese over low heat, 5 minutes. Add warmed cottage cheese, egg, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, and baking soda to yeast mixture. Stir in flour and Parmesan cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 1 hour 30 minutes.
    3. Oil a 1-quart casserole with some of the olive oil from sun-dried tomatoes. Stir batter vigorously and pour into prepared casserole. Cover with plastic wrap lightly coated with olive oil, cover with clean cloth; let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, 30 minutes.
    4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake loaf until it is golden brown, 40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Loosen loaf by running a knife around edges of casserole. Turn loaf out onto rack to cool or serve in casserole.

      Hi Robyn:
      This bread sounds great. I like the use of the cottage cheese. I use cottage cheese in a dill bread I make. It results in a nice crumb for the bread. I have added this to my Try Soon folder. Thanks for sharing!
