*I would leave this out, and sauté with water.

In a blender container combine cottage cheese and milk; blend til smooth. In a 2-quart saucepan cook sweet pepper and garlic in hot margarine until tender. Reduce heat.

Add milk mixture, peas, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir till heated through (do not boil) Toss with hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan and basil.

Note, I would also add some crab, or shrimp, or clams to make a seafood Alfredo!
