Pasta with mixed vegetables and yogurt

The vegetables are cooked in butter, yogurt is poured in to create a creamy sauce then cooked pasta is added and everything is tossed together. The dish is garnished with chopped parsley and toasted nuts. So tasty. I know that Sam loved it because she finished everything in that bowl in a very short time.

The obvious question: what vegetables are ideal for a pasta dish like this? Ones that retain their shape and remain lightly crisp after pan frying. Not leafy vegetables, for sure. I chose zucchini, cauliflower and bell peppers.

    Learning to appreciate plain yogurt more, we’ve been using it in lieu of mayonnaise. Thanks for this recipe, Ms. Connie, am eager to try it soon!

    I’ve made your crumbled Hungarian sausage and yogurt pasta several times and I must say, yogurt has just that right combination of sweet and sour!
    Also thinking of more ways to use yogurt –the most likely one is as substitute for cream… :-).

    Will try the above recipe very soon. :-) Thanks, Ms. Connie!
