Spaghetti With Greek-Yogurt Tomato Sauce

Notes

I used Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt [2], but your favorite brand of plain Greek yogurt will work.

Greek-Yogurt Pasta Sauce

Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 28-ounce can high-quality crushed tomatoes
1 pound whole wheat spaghetti
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, for garnish
Fresh basil, for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add garlic and onion, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Add red pepper flakes, and cook for an additional minute.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Cover, and turn heat down to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. While the sauce is simmering, cook spaghetti according to directions.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce, add the Greek yogurt, and mix well, until all is combined.
  5. Plate your pasta, and garnish with 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, basil, and extra red pepper flakes if you wish!
