We love pasta drenched in creamy sauces such as Alfredo sauce. However, the extra calories not so much.

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.
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.
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.
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.
This Gluten-Free Greek Yogurt Parmesan Pasta Sauce with Fettuccini and asparagus is a delicious main dish, especially when served with a light green salad. Or, serve it up as a side to your favourite protein such as fish, chicken or pork. Enjoy!
