spaghetti with roasted brussel sprouts & greek yogurt cream sauce + { a Dreamsfield Pasta GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!}

Pasta makes a regular appearance on my dinner plate.

In the general rotation – spaghetti and meatballs, penne with fresh pesto, and mac with a whole lot of cheese! Come to think of it, is there anything that doesn’t taste good with pasta? I mean, even black squid ink is considered a delicacy (actually quite delish I might add) when tossed with some noodles.

But with spring temperatures approaching (fingers crossed!) and the need to look sassy-mcsassy in cute maxi dresses, yours truly needs to get her tookus in shape. Not only do I need to dust off the ‘ol running shoes, but I really need to add healthier dishes my to diet too!

dreamfields pasta

Which is why I adore using Dreamfields pasta when looking for ways to up the nutrition in my weeknight dinner meals. Their pasta is too-legit-to-quit. Packed with 5 grams of dietary fiber per serving as well as a natural plant fiber called inulin, that supports better digestion. It’s like pasta with superpowers!

Well, to get into spring sassy shape, I decided to make some spaghetti with a Greek yogurt cream sauce, which really doesn’t have cream in the sauce! GASP! It’s a great fake-out when you are craving that sexy Alfredo sauce, but don’t want the Olive Garden consequences. Trust me, you won’t miss the cream in this pasta dish once you try it. Plus, I added a little roasted brussel sprouts and crumbled blue cheese…..forget.about.it.

Spaghetti with Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Greek Yogurt Cream Sauce

Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 lb. Dreamfields spaghetti
3 cups brussel sprouts, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balasmic vinegar
1 cup Greek Yogurt
2 oz plain goat cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
Blue cheese, garnish
Parsley, garnish
Grape tomatoes, garnish
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place sliced brussel sprouts on baking sheet and drizzle tops with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and s&p. Roast for about 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add about a teaspoon of salt to the boiling water to help flavor the pasta. Add the pasta in small bunches and continue to stir so the pasta doesn't stick together. In a large bowl, add the Greek yogurt, goat cheese, and mozzarella. Stir to combine. Once the pasta is al dente, remove spaghetti with tongs and place in bowl with all the cheeses. Ladle some of the reserved pasta water into the bowl to thin out the cheese allowing the pasta to absorb. Keep tossing and adding water to create a cream sauce. Then add the brussel sprouts.

To serve, place some of the spaghetti on a plate. Top with blue cheese, parsley, and grape tomatoes.

    You ain’t kidding, I need to get my booty in shape. I’m slowly working on it. I love Dreamfields pasta; it allows me to eat double my weight in pasta without feeling a bit of guilt. Who wouldn’t want to eat double their weight in pasta? This looks amazing!
