Pasta with basil sauce and yogurt

Pasta with basil sauce and yogurt

A quick way to handle this pasta. We can use fresh homemade pasta, or if not, the ones we bought. The sauce is prepared on the robot, so all we have to do is mix them and serve them immediately. It's actually a pesto sauce, to which I would add a little yogurt.

  • 500 gr pasta (fresh pasta recipe here )
  • 1 large bunch of basil, or two if small
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons pine buds
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 150 gr yogurt
  • salt
  • 50 gr parmesan race

Servings: 3

Preparation time: less than 30 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION Pasta with basil and yogurt sauce:

The pasta is boiled according to the instructions on the package, or, if we use fresh pasta, 4-5 minutes. You taste them from time to time and turn off the fire when they seem done. Then we strain them and do not give them cold water, we prepare the sauce and pour it over the pasta while they are still hot, so the sauce adheres much faster to the pasta.

For the sauce, pour all the ingredients in the blender, except the Parmesan cheese and beat a few times until smooth.

Mix it with the pasta and serve with Parmesan on top. They are my favorites!

And what other dish could have introduced me to the holiday season better than some simple pasta served with this wonderful tomato sauce?

With this recipe, I say goodbye and I'll tell you soon. I am convinced that if you try my recipe for tomato sauce for pasta, you will love it as much as I do.

Ingredients tomato sauce for pasta

  • 1 can of peeled tomatoes, whole
  • 5-6 large cloves of garlic
  • 3-4 branches of basil or 1 tablespoon of dried basil
  • 40 ml. of extra virgin olive oil and pepper

Method of preparation

How do we adapt the recipe with fresh tomatoes?

The same recipe can be prepared with fresh tomatoes. For this, you need about 2 kilograms of fleshy tomatoes. Proceed as I explained in the recipe for tomatoes in broth & # 8211 click here. Then continue as described below.

About the ingredients

The ingredients for this sauce are ridiculously few and within reach of anyone. Do not be afraid of the large amount of garlic, it being delicately cooked will develop a subtle and sweet aroma, in no case will it be very strong in the finished dish. I used a can of tomatoes from SunFood, but it can be used by any brand you trust.

1. Pour the olive oil into a cold pan. Before turning on the heat, add the peeled garlic cloves to the cold oil (at room temperature). Turn on the heat and set to minimum. Saute the garlic over low heat until it begins to release its flavor and turns slightly golden on both sides. This will take 2-3 minutes. Immediately, add the entire contents of a can of peeled tomatoes in broth and the washed and drained basil, along with the stem. If necessary, add 3-4 tablespoons of water. It usually takes.

2. Chop the tomatoes directly in the pan, with a fork or spoon. Continue cooking over low heat until the garlic is soft and creamy and can be easily crushed with a fork. In total it will take a maximum of 10 minutes. If you want a sauce with larger pieces, just crush the garlic with a fork and chop the tomatoes a little more, remove the stems and basil leaves and it's ready. If you want a fine sauce, after removing the basil toppings, pass everything with the hand blender. I usually leave a few leaves. I don't leave too much, because it influences the color of the sauce and not for the better.

3. Add the sauce to a short boil and season to taste with salt and pepper. The sauce is ready, ready to taste cooked al dente pasta or to be stored in the refrigerator.

Serving and storage

If you want to keep it, pour the hot sauce into jars that you close with lids that close tightly. Cool them slowly, wrapped in many layers of textiles or in the oven. The sterilized sauce in jars can be kept for the winter in the pantry. When serving, just heat it in the pan, add the pasta and a little of the water in which they boiled, grated Parmesan cheese and refresh everything with fresh basil.
