This is a really good, REALLY fast pasta dish. I was afraid that the yogurt would make it too sour, but I think the recipe calls for the perfect amount. It would be a bad idea to substitute dried herbs for fresh, by the way, and I think I'll add more basil next time. Thanks for sharing this one; I'm sure I'll be making it again.

My family really liked this pasta. I used up the half empty rotini and bowtie pasta and tossed the sauce with it and mixed in some steamed broccoli. A nice change from tomato based sauces...

I made this using blenderized cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese and added a little fresh chopped parsley. I was Delicious, however it loses flavor if you let it get cold. Parmesan cheese is good topper.
