Yogurt Sauce

Yogurt sauce is a super simple way to make a boring plate of pasta a little more fun. As a college student I eat a lot of pasta, so learning this easy recipe was a life saver. There are many different variations of the recipe I use depending on what I have in the fridge. Here is a very general variation:

Ingredients:

2 T vegetable oil

Vegetables (I usually use red or green peppers or broccoli)

2 cups plain yogurt (Greek yogurt would probably also work, although I have never tried this)

1-2 T butter

Seasoning (Garlic, Italian seasoning, and onion power are all great options)

Cheese (optional)

 

Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan at low heat. Add the vegetables; my favorite vegetable to use is a red pepper, but I think most vegetables would work well. Let simmer for about a minute     (might have to be longer depending on the vegetable)

2. Add the yogurt, butter, and seasoning. Mix and let simmer for another minute or so. The  yogurt, oil, and butter will not fully mix, so don’t worry if they stay pretty separate.

3. I almost always add cheese to the sauce, but it’s not necessary. I use about a handful of either mozzarella or cheddar cheese. Add it at the end, heat until it melts, and then your sauce is done!   Enjoy!
