If the cottage cheese is too watery, strain it using a fine-mesh sieve to remove excess liquid.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cottage cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and olive oil.
You can either use a food processor to blend the ingredients until smooth, or simply mash them together with a fork for a chunkier texture.
Add salt and black pepper to taste. Adjust according to your preference.
Stir in the chopped fresh parsley. This adds a burst of freshness and color to the spread.
If you prefer a smoother consistency, you can add a little more olive oil or a splash of water to achieve your desired texture.
Taste the spread and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more garlic for a stronger flavor.
Transfer the garlic cheese spread to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. It can be kept for up to a week.
