Spaghetti and Plain Yogurt Side Dish




This is a perfect summer dish, it is to be eaten cold and can be coupled
with a sandwich, meat, chicken and best of all fries.

Step 1: List of Ingredients

For this simple dish I used the following ingredients:

A pack of 450g of spaghetti

750g or 1 liter of 2% plain yogurt

Handful of dried mint

2 cloves of garlic (medium size)

Salt (to taste)

Step 2: Boil the Spaghetti

As soon as the spaghetti finish boiling, wash them with cold
water for two minutes.

The spaghetti and the yogurt should be mixed cold to prevent the yogurt from separating.

Step 3: Garlic

Crush the garlic using a mortar and a pestle until the
garlic is a paste.

Step 4: Mix Everything Together

Mix the spaghetti, the yogurt and the garlic together,
ensuring to coat all the spaghetti with yogurt and garlic.

Then add the dried mint and salt then mix some more.

Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Enjoy

I love to eat them with fries.

    it is so easy and nice looking
    but i am not sure about the taste of it

    Lovely and simple. Great. Thank you.
    I wonder if you substituted mashed fresh basil leaves for the mint, if it wouldn't approximate a pesto when you mix with the garlic and yogurt.
    Either way, YUM.

    Hi Ricardo, I've tried it with basil and with oregano.... both are good but it got old very fast , the basil has a strong taste in my opinion.
    here is a variation that I love to this day, substitute the pasta for cucumbers ☺ it changes the dish to a perfect cold soup.

    Mmm, sounds interesting! I never think about crushing garlic into a paste, that's a good idea.

    I love yogurt and I love spaghetti, so I'm definitely going to try this sometime.
