This is so delish....adding a bit of zucchini or broccoli sauteed in garlic makes it even better. Yum!

Excellent vegan Alfredo, loved this one! The addition of pine nuts is a brillant idea - will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting!

This recipe doesn't taste anything like Alfredo sauce to me, but it is FANTASTIC!!! I'll say it again! It is FANTASTIC!!! It makes your house smell so good, and is truly delicious with a great after taste! A great recipe to convert meat-eaters with! Try it with some mock chicken patties, sliced up and placed on top! :-)
