refreshing and yummy

I have always loved a white rich cream sauce but am trying to be a bit healthier. This is such a refreshing tangy pasta. Its great hot or cold. After reading comments I used regular yogurt instead of low fat. Do NOT use greek yogurt, it is much thicker and the sauce will not turn out perfect and creamy. My boyfriend loved it. I will definitely make again. I thought it had lots of flavor, was different, and delicious!

I love this recipe - amazing the difference we all have in taste

Wow - upon reading the repeated reviews for this I'm surprised - this is one of my favorite recipes - I love the tart flavor. Perhaps it is important to make with good pasta and like one reviewer said - regular yogurt - not low fat - I love the freshness.

easy and quick to make

Good with a few tweaks

The reason there are so many complaints about the sauce flavor is because low fat or fat free yogurt is just so wrong. Use real yogurt people! Look at the difference in calories between reduced fat yogurt and the good stuff. Not a big difference. And look at all the ingredients you can't pronounce in the low fat yogurt. You don't want that in your bod. For this recipe I use plain goat yogurt and it's awesome. Any plain whole yogurt would be good! You might be tempted to try with Greek yogurt, but don't! (It's too thick to make nice creamy sauce.)

I use whatever veggies I have on hand like sugar snap peas and broccoli rabe. I added some shallots to the sauce too. So so good!

Don't waste your time

The sauce was awful! We rinsed off the veggies, shrimp, and pasta to salvage something edible. The sauce tasted like sour chalk. I cook with yogurt very frequently and thought this would be good but I was so very wrong.

Good veggie and shrimp mix
