  1. Boil the pasta in salted water 1 minute less than packet instructions. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water and drain the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley. Slowly whisk in the hot pasta water a little bit at a time. Add the pepper, and taste for cheese and salt. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. Toss the cooked, hot pasta into the sauce. Serve immediately. Add extra parmesan cheese freshly grated from the chunk to taste.

Chef Tips

It’s important to use very fresh yogurt to make this. Even creamy Greek yogurt can become overly tart tasting if it’s been open too long in your fridge.

If you’re watching your fat intake, use 2% yogurt, but not 0%. 0% is naturally thin, and gets its consistency from added carbs, which you don’t want to for a pasta dish.

It’s best to use chunk Parmesan Cheese and grate it as needed. Not only does it taste better, you won’t be buying air as you do with pre-grated!
