Lightened up simple Alfredo pasta made with yogurt! 



For the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp butter or ghee 
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¾ cup siggi’s plain 0% yogurt
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese 
  • ¼ cup reserved pasta water, as needed
  • ¼ cup unsweetened oat or almond milk
  • ¼ tsp sea salt, more to taste 
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, more to taste

For the pasta:

  • 12 oz pasta of choice
  • Shredded parmesan for topping
  • 12 cups steamed broccoli (optional)


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the butter then slightly reduce heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Remove from heat and sed aside.
  2. Cook pasta according to directions on box. Reserve ¼ cup of pasta water just before straining.
  3. In a blender, add the butter and garlic, yogurt, oat or almond milk, parmesan, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth, adding the pasta water as needed to thin.
  4. In the skillet where you cooked the garlic, stir together the pasta and the sauce. If needed, turn on low heat to gently heat the sauce for 1-2 minutes. Careful not to overheat, as this will cause separation in the yogurt.
