Step 1

Use a medium sized pot to boil noodles. Add 2 tbsp salt to water to flavor the water before it boils. Once water is boiling add in pasta and cook pasta for 8-10 minutes or as specified on package.

Step 2

Steam or boil your broccoli in a separate pot of boiling water - cook to your desired tenderness.

Step 3

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in garlic. Stir in milk (or water). Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2 minutes. Then gradually whisk in greek yogurt and parmesan until melted. If the cheese doesn't melt, just throw it back on the stove for another minute to warm up!

Step 4

Add sauce to your favorite noodles and broccoli and top with dried or fresh parsley.
