Even though I can't have dairy, every once in awhile I crave a creamy alfred0-like pasta sauce.
I say Alfredo-like because it is challenging to make something that's entire essence is dairy into a non-dairy recipe. Alfredo is defined as "with cream sauce: served with a rich sauce made from cream, butter, and Parmesan cheese."
I served it over Maninis Gluten Free Roasted Garlic Fettuccini. I am absolutely crazy about the Maninis Gluten Free pastas. When I rounded the corner at my local PCC and saw the package of fresh gluten free noodles I let out a little yelp.
I went home and cooked them for dinner and they are truly delicious! Another gluten free product that can hold up against any wheat pasta. Actually, I am pretty sure the Maninis pasta would win.
