Extra wide tagliatelli with Shrimp and Natural Yoghurt Sauce

Ingredients for Recipe:
  • 350 g tagliatelle large
  • 1 large carrot (peeled and thinly sliced the cartoons)
  • 1 large courgette (cut into very thin strips)
  • 250grs peeled raw shrimp (cut into halves)
  • 1 small pot of yoghurt

  • A cube of fish stock (knorr or other brand)
  • 2 teaspoons flour (diluted one-third of a cup of water)
  • Some olive oil, salt and black pepper

   A very simple dish to make quick and tasty as well as having a yoghurt tang which is unparalleled resembling a lemony taste.

   Prepare all the ingredients, once prepared the dish takes only about 15 minutes to make.
  Put the pasta cooking in boiling water with a crushed garlic clove, and at  the same time place  a large skillet with a drizzle of olive oil, and the (2 finely chopped) garlic,  to that add the onion and carrot bring it to sizzling point, stirring constantly to avoid burning (for about 5 minutes).

  Once the carrots soften then add the courgette the bay leaves the fish stock and 1 / 3 cup water, bring to a boil stirring regularly for 5 minutes. Finally add the tablespoon of butter and (water diluted ) flour, yoghurt then let it reach boil and add the shrimp, reduce the heat to minimum and cook for another 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally (do not forget to taste it to see if you need adding any salt and or black pepper).
   Drain pasta and serve it on a plate making a nest, in the middle place the shrimp sauce and finally add a little drizzle all around of extra virgin olive oil .Bon appetit!

Liked the idea of using yogurt. We use yogurt in many curries but never really thought of combining it with pasta. I will definitely try it sometime.
