Penne Alla Vodka

  • 8 ounces whole wheat penne
  • 2 cups Marinara Sauce
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 container (7 ounces) 2 percent Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
Directions Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions, drain. While the pasta is cooking, bring the marinara sauce and crushed red pepper to a simmer in a large nonstick saut̩ pan over medium heat. Cook the sauce, stirring it occasionally with a heat-until it 's slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove the saut̩ pan from the heat. Stir about 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce into the yogurt until smooth (this tempers it and prevents the yogurt from curdling). Then whisk the yogurt mixture back into the marinara sauce. In a large serving bowl, toss the sauce with the drained penne and the basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the cheese on top, and serve. Original Source
