  1. This was okay. My husband and I cooked it together, and I would make it again for me, but he wasn't a huge fan. I actually came across this when I was wondering if there were any alfredo sauces out there that used plain yogurt, but discovered I had most of these ingredients on hand. I only had tomato sauce instead of paste, so used about half a can of that. We went heavy on the spices, and also added some cayenne for a little kick. Left out the raisins, and overall, I thought it was a good, full flavor. The peanuts were a nice addition. We did use farfalle pasta, but felt that the the more "liquidy" consistency of the sauce would be perfect for....take a wild guess....yes, rice. :) We'd definitely do rice with this next time. Thanks for the recipe!


I'm a small animal veterinary technician working full time. In my spare (?) time I love to bake and cook. I have about 80 different cookbooks and I guess my favorite ones are those that involve CHOCOLATE!! <br> <br>My biggest 'pet' peeve is people who treat their dogs and cats like disposable products...look after the health and well-being of your pets, PLEASE! They depend on you! ('Nuff said!). <br> <br>June 2003 Update: I now work part-time as a vet tech and part-time as an ER ward clerk at a local hospital. After being a technician for 20 years, the emotional stress was getting too hard to handle. Putting an older pet to sleep after I'd watched them grow up over the years was something I could no longer do. I decided to look for a new job while I was still 40-something rather than wait 4 years when I was 50-something! Working with animals is in my blood however, so I could not give it up entirely.
