Weekday dinner: a surprisingly satisfying pasta

Pasta and ground turkey were both on sale at Safeway this week - score!  While thinking about what to make on Friday evening, I remembered a particular Cooking for Mr. Latte excerpt describing a pasta sauced with yogurt.  And so, while boiling water for shell pasta (one of my favorite pasta shapes), I cooked some ground turkey with diced onion, and then after turning off the heat, added some plain yogurt and golden raisins.  The remaining heat liquified the yogurt, resulting in a creamy and somewhat tangy sauce with bursts of sweetness from the raisins.  I paired the pasta with some steamed broccoli.
