Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so this recipe probably wouldn't be one of my personal favorites. On the other hand, my five year old son is a picky eater but LOVES pasta, yogurt, and mandarin oranges. This would be a great thing to make for him! It would make a great light summer lunch, and since it has protein in the yogurt and is on the sweet side, I might even serve it to him for a eat and run breakfast during the school week!
