Instructions

  • Start by getting all of your veggies ready, and feel free to be creative and cut them into different shapes. Pretty food always tastes better and different shapes add a pleasing look to your dish!
  • The first thing to do is start your pasta water boiling, and measure out your yogurt and allow it to come to room temperature.
  • After prepping your veggies gently sauté them in the olive oil and garlic till they are just barely cooked. Now set them aside to stay warm
  • Cook your pasta per the instructions on the box.
  • While the pasta is cooking in another sauté pan add your milk and allow it to get very hot
  • Add the grated cheese and mix well, turn the heat down to low and allow the mixture to reduce slightly.
  • Now here is the only tricky part to the meal, as soon as the pasta is ready put your veggies back on for a quick reheat.
  • Drain your pasta
  • In a large bowl add your pasta, the Chobani Yogurt and the milk/cheese mixture. Toss this all together to blend well.
  • Feel free to add in another handful of grated cheese if you like, season with pepper and plate it into servings or on one large serving platter, then top with your beautiful vegetables!
  • Either way you serve this pasta dish, it will definitely make an impression!! Now for the best part, you left out all of the evil heavy cream!! So you can enjoy a wonderful pasta primavera with out any of the guilt!
