macaroni B Laban


Main Ingredients

  • 250g pasta (shell)
  • 500g natural yogurt
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • salt to season


  • 1 tablespoon ghee/butter
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts

Notes from Rouba

  • Bigger size pasta doesn’t do this dish justice.
  • The pasta must be warm before being tossed with yogurt (highly recommend).
  • Adding butter & pine nuts is optional.
  • Once the pasta is tossed with the yogurt, it’s best to serve straight away.


Step 1.

Boil the pasta until soft (softer than al dente). Drain.

Step 2.

Whilst the pasta is cooking, prepare the yogurt by mixing yogurt, crushed garlic & salt. Toss warm pasta with the prepared garlic yogurt sauce.

Step 3.

This step is optional. Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee or butter, add 1 tablespoon of pine nuts and toss until golden in colour. Pour it on top of the pasta.
