Well, it’s Monday folks.

This is probably one of the less stressful Mondays for me. Mostly because I mailed hard copies of my senior thesis to my committee members on Friday and now all I can think about is how I only have five (1,2,3,4,5) assignments and just one final exam left. That, plus my Oral Defense is the rest of my bachelors degree in a nutshell.

It’s a beautiful, small, completely tolerable nutshell and I’m basking in that relief today.

I feel pretty badly that I’ve been slacking in the blogging department lately. I’m sorry! Forgive me friends. I have tons of amazing recipes coming your way – I’ve just been running out of hours in the day lately with all of the research I’ve been doing for my thesis on top of typical homework drudgery.

This week I planned on making 12 new recipes for you. But we have a storm coming through over the next couple of days. So you miiiiight have to settle for 5 or 6.

But NEXT week, it’s looking sunny sunny sunny and that means hoards of new recipes will be created in this old 70’s kitchen of mine.

No promises though – Utah weather is notoriously fickle.

First up: Greek Yogurt Alfredo Sauce.

One of my many quirky cooking habits includes finding sneaky ways to get greek yogurt into my dishes. It’s loaded with protein and if you’re using 0% fat which I always do, it’s even healthier. It adds yummy flavor to your dishes – way better than sour cream if you ask me. When I worked it into this alfredo sauce recipe, I was instantly hooked. So creamy, so much flavor, so much goodness on top of any pasta you desire.

I’ve been in a carby, pasta mood lately so a stash of cooked fettuccine noodles have taken up residence in my fridge along with a jar of homemade greek yogurt alfredo sauce.

Stop buying the jarred stuff and makes some of this gorgeous sauce at home. You. will. love. it.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup milk or water (I used fat free half & half)
  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt (I used 0% fat)
  • 1/2 - 2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley (or 1 teaspoon fresh)
  • 8 ounces pasta noodles, cooked

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in garlic powder. Stir in milk (or water). Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Gradually whisk in greek yogurt.
  • Add parmesan cheese to sauce and stir until melted. (If the cheese doesn't melt completely because the sauce is too cool, return to stove on low for a couple of minutes) Add salt and pepper to taste and toss with your favorite cooked pasta noodles.

Notes

*Store any leftover sauce in the fridge in an airtight container such as a jar. The sauce tends to get very thick - almost solid - after being chilled, just add 1 tablespoon of water or milk and heat it up in the microwave, then stir til smooth and serve!
