Newly vegan and have been looking for something to satisfy my dairy craving. This absolutely did the trick! It was delicious and felt like I was eating something creamy and off limits. Didn't add all the sauce to the pasta because I felt it would be a little rich for my taste. I did make some crostini and spread the leftover sauce on them, amazing! This recipe is great as is but I will be using the sauce as a dip/spread with veggies and on sandwiches as well.

I felt like this needed a little more oomph and my final version was definitely 5 stars. I sauteed about 3T of onion with the garlic in a little of the sun dried tomato oil and then added that into the sauce. I also added 1 veggie bouillon cube and about 3T of rice milk to thin it out. I didn't have quite enough basil (literally cleaned off my plants which are done for the year) and so I added a little fresh oregano which was a fine addition. I also sauteed 4 baby bella mushrooms and added those to the sauce. My tofu was soft silken in nature which I would do again. Thanks for sharing!
