This pasta is on top of our list these days. Homemade pasta is called eriste in Turkish and it is made at home in great amounts to be stored for later cooking. There is of course its market version for those who don’t want to work on it, but I can’t give a guarantee for its taste. Here is the recipe for homemade pasta if you have time and want to make it yourself. You can play with the amounts if you are not planning to store any.
Mixing homemade pasta with yogurt is perfect for summer, when you don’t feel like eating anything heavy. This pasta with yogurt will be a great alternative to other pasta dishes on hot days. A bowl of pasta with yogurt and a bowl of fresh salad make a fantastic lunch or dinner. Try it!
