From the folks at Stonyfield Farms yogurt in NH (the best yogurt in the US!) - a healthy version of a rich pasta dish.

Very good recipe. I was looking for a healthier version made with milk rather than cream. I made it as written except I used penne instead of fettucine and added just a teeny bit of butter (okay, 1 tablespoon) which smoothed the texture a bit and I did miss the fat. DH sprinkled his with a pinch of red pepper flakes. He liked it and he can be picky. I even told him there was yogurt in it and he said, "Good!"
