RecipeSavants.com Greek yogurt is an interesting additional to a traditional carbonara. The yogurt adds a creamy richness that pairs with rich and savory flavors of the guanciale and cheeses. While not 100% traditional – think of this dish as a cross between a carbonara and a quick alfredo. You are going to love it.

If you enjoyed this easy carbonara, you'll love these fresh ideas!
Greek Yogurt Coleslaw
Forget mayonnaise-loaded high-calorie coleslaw and try this healthier, brighter and still creamy crunchy and refreshing coleslaw. Mayonnaise and cream get a healthier replacement by non-fat plain Greek yogurt in this coleslaw and tossed with lemon juice, cider vinegar, honey and Dijon mustard. This coleslaw pairs excellently with BBQ and smoked meats.
Paninis may have originated in Italy, but you can use any international flavors, such as this Greek-style recipe. Layer pitas with roast chicken, tomatoes, basil, and tangy feta. The flavorful topping is a mixture of Greek yogurt and pesto.
Easy Spinach Lasagna
We all love the lasagna, the appealing layers of sauce, pasta, vegetables and cheese is delightful. In this version, I boost the flavor and nutrient profile by adding healthy and tasty spinach. This is a easy and very tasty dish for meatless mondays.
Hot Italian Sausage Spaghetti
There is nothing easier nor more satisfying than a meal of spaghetti tossed with all the Italian cuisine essential such as Italian sausage, mushroom, herbed canned tomato, spaghetti sauce, Parmesan and herbs and spices. Loaded with sausages, vegetables and pasta it makes a complete meal on its own.
