Spaghetti in yoghurt-mint sauce

When, after a long, (mild) winter, spring kisses you with its 25 °C from one day to the next, the heavy stew can take a break for a while. Something fresh is needed! Fresh, tasty and definitely quick and filling. These are high demands, but this spaghetti in yoghurt-mint sauce more than lives up to them.

When I served this dish to friends for the first time, they were a little irritated. "The noodles are cold!"
Yep, this spaghetti is tossed cold in a delicious yoghurt sauce with dried mint, grated cucumber and freshly crushed garlic and served with freshly roasted pine nuts. As big as the irritation was at first, an approving smile spread at the latest after the first fork. Spaghetti approved!

Especially on really hot days, when I can't cool down the flat even by drawing the curtains and using a big fan, I really don't want to eat anything warm. Then, at the latest, it's time for these deliciously cold noodles. The yoghurt, cucumber and mint are all ingredients that have a really pleasant cooling effect. Serving cold does not detract from the taste at all.

However, you shouldn't eat this recipe before a date. On that day, you'll have to live with a real garlic smell. So if you don't have a date to make out with, try this wonderfully fresh spaghetti in yoghurt and mint sauce 😉
