Number of Servings: 4


    8 oz wheat pasta
    2 cups low fat marinara sauce
    pinch of crushed red pepper
    7oz 2% greek yogurt
    1 cup chopped fresh basil
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    6 tablespoons grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions, about 9 minutes; drain.
2. While pasta is cooking, bring marinara sauce and crushed red pepper to simmer in a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Cook sauce, stirring it occasionally with a heat-resistant rubber spatula, until it is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove saute pan from heat.
3. Stir about 1/2 cup marinara sauce into yogurt until smooth (this prevents yogurt from curdling). Then whisk yogurt mixture back into saute pan with remaining sauce.
4. In a large bowl, toss sauce with drained penne and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese on top.
