Onion and Yogurt Spaghetti

Total Time

Cook 20 mins

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.

This dish surprised me. I chose it because I had everything on hand and wasn't expecting much from such a simple recipe, but WOW, this recipe is really good. I used whole wheat linguini. It's so simple that it would be easy to throw in extra ingredients and change it up. I will definately use this again. Made for Vegnswap 13 VIP.

I really enjoyed this, easy to do and very versatile. I stuck to the ingredients, although I enjoy the suggestions from other reviewers, I especially like the idea of dried red pepper flakes for that little bite. As we use little seasoning, we enjoyed the simple flavours here, this made a pleasant supper for DH and , and would certainly also go well with an added tomato-based sauce, or as a side dish. Thanks Bellinda, very nice! Made for Lucky 13 Vegetarian Swap, August 09
