Pasta is always a conundrum as a side dish. I want to pencil it into my weekly meal plan, but then I blank on how to sauce it: Cream? So fattening for a weeknight. Tomato? Good, but it gets old. Lots of cheese? Heavy again.
If there’s ever a time when you can have too much of a good thing, it might be right now, when fresh summertime herbs are beyond abundant. Happily, this recipe for Fresh Herbed Yogurt Cheese is just the ticket when you’re looking to put a dent in the stockpile of herbs overflowing in your garden or taking up too much space in your refrigerator. It’s a fresh cheese based on Greek yogurt, and it’s very flexible regarding its herbal flavorings.
