Green yogurt parmesan sauce


We love pasta drenched in creamy sauces such as Alfredo sauce. However, the extra calories not so much. This healthier version of creamy home made white pasta sauce is made mostly with Greek yogurt and broth or wine, keeping the sauce light without the extra cream and butter you would find in the classic Alfredo sauce recipe.

Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce variations.

I love this sauce because you can change it up by adding veggies, cooked meats, seafood or fresh herbs. I recommend that the veggies are first blanched or steamed before adding them to the sauce. My favourite veggies to add to the white sauce are broccoli, peas, mushrooms or zucchini.






fresh veggies,

When using fresh veggies, they should be briefly cooked or blanched or steamed before adding them to the sauce. The easiest way to do this is, adding them to the pasta water for the last minute or so while the pasta is still cooking. The veggies should remain fork-tender but still firm.

mushrooms are an exception,

The only exception is mushrooms. If you are using mushrooms, they should be thinly sliced. Add them to the sauce before adding the yogurt, and cook them covered for about 1 minute. Then continue with the recipe. 


If you decide to add meat, it must be cooked first. The Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce is an excellent way to use up leftover meats, such as chicken, pork, bacon or ham.


wild salmon, seafood



Seafood makes a delicious addition to this gluten-free Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce. The seafood such as shrimp, white fish or salmon can be cooked in the sauce. Add the seafood before adding the yogurt and a little extra broth/pasta water. Cover the saucepan and simmer until cooked. Then continue with the recipe.


parmesan cheese


the sauce,

The Greek yogurt parmesan pasta sauce cooks very quickly and should be simmered over low heat to avoid curdling. The Parmesan cheese will melt and make the sauce super creamy.
