I am a registered dietitian and I loved the idea of this recipe but agree with many comments that the flavor is a bit too tangy and the texture too runny. I used plain Greek yogurt instead (personalrd.com) and the result was much better!

The sauce was just too weird tasting with the yogurt. If I made this again, I would find just a normal Alfredo or other sauce. It ended up being a huge waste of money, good shrimps and good veggies because we didn't eat it.
I've never seen such a controversial recipe! Seems like you love it or hate it! I read through some comments and decided to use 50% reduced fat creme fraiche instead of yogurt. everything else was exactly like the recipe. It was delicious and a perfect summer-time meal. I shaved on some parmesan before serving and sprinkled on some chili flakes for me. I would make this again for sure!
Was way too much garlic and the sauce went weird when we mixed it with the pasta, wouldn't eat it again
To each their own, but I really enjoyed this meal! It's something different...definitely tasty!
