Curried Broccoli & Rotini

Rotini pasta is shaped like corkscrew noodles.  Gemelli pasta looks
like two strands of pasta twisted together.

Makes 4 Servings

3 ounces rotini or gemelli pasta (1 1/3 cups)
1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
1 teaspoon curry powder
3 cups broccoli flowerets
1/2 cup chopped red or green sweet pepper
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 teaspoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
Dash Salt

Cook rotini according to package directions except omit salt.  Meanwhile,
in a large skillet heat oil.  Add curry powder and stir-fry over medium-high
heat for 1 minute.  Add broccoli and sweet pepper; stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes
or till crisp-tender.  For sauce, in a small saucepan, stir together the yogurt,
chicken broth, flour, mustard, and salt. Stir into broccoli mixture.  Cook and
stir till thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir for 1 minute more.  Add pasta to
broccoli mixture; toss to mix.  Heat through.  Serve immediately.
