I prefer to use vanilla yogurt, for a much better taste !! For me using natural yogurt is to blant.

I thought this dish was wonderful. It was healthy, light, and filling. I tried it for the first time with my boyfriend last week and we are having it for dinner again tonight!

Turned out pretty well! I ended up sauteing the garlic and veggies in 1-2 T olive oil until they were soft enough for us. Then I added the lemon juice and turned down the heat before adding the yogurt to the mixture. I also added a bit of garlic salt and 1.5 oz. mozarella cheese. Overall, a nice dish!

I used Greek yogurt without any problems. I also used shrimp that was already cooked and I just rinsed under cool water to defrost. Really good recipe that my husband and I loved!

I made this last night and was very impressed; a few variations though:
Cooked the shrimp on the BBQ. I tossed them in a paste of paprika, cayenne, salt, smashed garlic clove, lemon juice and olive oil.
Also, I cooked the pasta four minutes, added the green beans (not an asparagus fan), after another two minutes added the pepper slices and peas and cooked another three minutes.
I used greek yogurt and didn't have a problem with it curdling.
Delicious!
