Yogurt Fettuccine Alfredo

Ingredients

1 pound fettuccine noodles
1 small garlic clove, chopped
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Dash of pepper
Dash of nutmeg

Directions

  1. Bring a stockpot of water to a boil and add the pasta and simmer according to the directions on the box. To make this dish even healthier, use whole wheat noodles.
  2. Chop the garlic and add it to the boiling water with the pasta. This mellows out the garlic and infuses the pasta with its flavor.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, invite your child to measure and add the yogurt, salt, and Italian seasoning. Give the mixture a stir.
  4. Once the noodles are cooked through, turn off the heat, strain, and return the noodles to the hot pot. Add the butter and toss so the pasta is coated.
  5. Carefully add the pasta to the yogurt mixture and stir until the sauce is evenly distributed.
  6. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and give it another toss. Serve with extra cheese and a dusting of salt and pepper and a hint of nutmeg.
