Really easy, quick & delicious pasta dish. This is my "healthy" comfort food to which you can add anything else. (I never do - too lazy!). Must be eaten in front of the TV.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -2 cup pasta (eg. shells, spirals, bow-ties)
  • 3 teaspoons pesto sauce (use a good quality one)
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt (low-fat is fine)
  • salt & pepper


  1. Amounts given for above ingredients are very approximate, just add and taste as you go.
  2. Cook pasta 'al dente'.
  3. Drain well but don't rinse.
  4. Return pasta to pan and while still warm mix in a couple of teaspoons of pesto.
  5. Mix in a dollop of the yoghurt.
  6. Season to taste.
  7. Add more or less yoghurt or pesto to taste.
  8. Sour cream can be added as well for a richer taste but obviously not as healthy, I have previously added a dash of soy sauce, sounds strange but it's nice!
