Macaroni bel Leban

this Levantine-style pasta dish is immersed in a very garlicky yogurt sauce, and I wish to top it with Aleppo butter-fried pinenuts. -it’s the right comfort meal.

I sometimes top it with fried garlic and cilantro, or spiced meat, but the planet is your oyster and this can be such a straightforward dish to make! it’s creamy and tangy, and might be eaten hot, at temperature, or cold. it tastes sort of a hug, truly.

1 lb pasta, cooked al dante
21/3 cups yogurt
7 cloves of garlic, grated
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tbsp aleppo pepper
4 tsp salted butter
3 tbsp vegetable oil

  • boil pasta of your choice in salt water until hard
  • in a bowl, add yogurt, salt and garlic and blend until combined.
  • add boiled pasta into yogurt sauce and blend well.
  • allow to sit down for some minutes before topping with aleppo butter fried nuts and serving!
  • to make the aleppo butter fried nuts, add butter olive oil and pine nuts to pan and warmth on medium-
  • low heat until pine nuts begin getting golden.
  • add in aleppo pepper, put off heat and stir for an extra 30 seconds till the butter reddens. serve oven pasta and revel in it

if you plan to eat when temperature or cold, add 1/4-1/2 cup additional yogurt (the pasta soaks it up!)
