Fettuccine With Tomato Basil & Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Step 1

Indian cuisine is one of John's favorites. This pasta sauce is basically a variation on the Indian raita, a cooling, soothing combination of cucumber, cilantro and yogurt. Do not substitute non-fat yogurt for low-fat: over the heat of the pasta, the former becomes too runny. Have all the ingredients 1 lb Fettuccine cooked al dente according to package directions

Step 2

In a large bowl combine the basil, parsley, scallions and tomatoes, and toss well to mix Spoon the yogurt over the herbs and vegetables and blend well. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.

Step 3

Divide the hot fettuccine among four warm bowls. Spoon the sauce over it and serve immediately.
