Excellent recipe. I will never prepare a pasta sauce with cream any more. This is it. I love this recipe and it tastes great. I am trying to stay away from dairy (not that I do not like it but because it is simply unhealthy) and this simply makes me happy. I gave it a five star despite a few changes I made. I used soft tofu instead of firm. I also added nutmeg which is my secret (I guess not anymore) to any creamy dish. I also added onions and shallots that I sauteed in a little olive oil before adding the mixture. This sauce was wonderful over my Barilla whole wheat thin spaghetti. Thank you for a great and healthy recipe.

Nice, easy dairy free option. I'm getting tired of red sauce and its heartburn but being dairy free rules out most other options. This was a nice find. I use silken tofu in desserts all the time but it definitely needs a strong flavor like chocolate or peanut butter to mask it. I made this exactly as suggested but it still tasted tofu'y' till I added some nutritional yeast. It was perfect since another recipe had me buy it and I didn't like that one so the yeast has been sitting in the fridge since. This is the perfect recipe to add it to. Thanks for posting. We had it over a new red lentil pasta I found at whole foods so it was a nice combo of white sauce on red pasta. Looking forward to trying it on spinach noodles next time.

Unbelievably alfredo-y. I omitted most of the dried herbs (bc I didn't have them), used regular milk in place of soy, and otherwise just threw it into a mini food processor. And voila, add a little parm, salt & basil and, you've got yourself REAL alfredo. This is amazing.

Made this last night to go with edamame, cherry tomatoes, pasta and baby spinach. I didn't add any soymilk since I like the sauce thick in this case. I also added onion powder and black pepper then heat it up on the stove. Delicious!

Excellent! I needed a quick and easy recipe for the kids for lunch today, and threw this together. I ran out of soymilk, so I substituted veggie broth. I also added a tablespoon of nutritional yeast, and used fresh basil. I will definitely make this again!

New to tofu and thought it was very good! Added a bunch of parmesan to approximate an alfredo taste...

I've made this a few times now and it's very good. The recipe is easy to tweak to suit whatever kinda of pasta dish your making.

Ok I just came across this recipe today so I haven't tried it yet but couldn't hold in my excitement to find a non-dairy, non-tomato sauce. I can't wait to actually make this. Thanks for having a recipe for us who can't eat what most people can.

I made this more in hope than expectation because I wasn't sure if this might be a bit bland. But no one in a million years could accuse this wonderful pasta sauce of blandness. Mr B gave this 4 stars, but I'm giving it an extra star for being so quick and easy to make. An ideal recipe for when time is tight, but you still want a tasty meal.
