Pasta with Yogurt Sauce

Description

Mash cloves of garlic into a paste and add to plain yogurt to make a tart and pungent pasta sauce. Toss with warm buttery noodles and garnish with parsley. Toasted pine nuts sprinkled over the top make this dish a special treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package pasta
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente.
  2. Using a mortar and pestle, mash the salt and garlic cloves together into a paste. Warm the yogurt slightly in a sauce pan. Remove a small amount of warmed yogurt from the pan, and stir together with the garlic paste. Stir this mixture into the remaining yogurt
  3. Drain the pasta, and rinse in cold water. Place in a casserole or deep serving dish, toss with 1 tablespoon butter or margarine. Toss with half of the garlic-yogurt sauce. Spread the remaining sauce over the pasta. Garnish with the parsley.
  4. For a very special dish, brown the pine nuts in 2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Pour over the parsley. Serve immediately.
