Onion and Yogurt Spaghetti

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bellinda

I copied and adjusted this recipe from a cookbook a long time ago. I make it every now and then when I get cravings for it and the kids love it as well. You can adjust the ingredients to your liking. I myself never measure anyway. You can use wide egg noodles, spaghetti or linguine.

What a great recipe. My whole family loved this (DH&DS) tasted way better than any bechemel sauce I ever had. Nice and light and creamy. I always have lots of yogurt on hand. I made it into a one dish meal by topping it with chicken tenders, peas,spinach and seasonings. I did use penne instead because it's easier for my son to eat and the sauce stuck to it nicely.Thanks it's definately a keeper.Made for PAC Fall 09.
