Cashew Alfredo Sauce

Cashew Alfredo Sauce

My wife loves Alfredo sauce, so when I discovered how delicious and versatile cashew cream could be I knew what I had to do. This sauce has all of the flavor of a dairy based Alfredo, but with 75% less saturated fat. The texture of this sauce is smooth, thick, and it clings to the noodles well. Did I mention it is also really tasty?

Ingredients

Method

  1. mince the garlic and cook it in a small pan with the oil until golden brown
  2. add all ingredients to blender (I used a vita-mix) and blend until smooth
  3. pour mixture back into small pan and heat.
  4. reduce if desired. I reduced mine on low heat for another 10-15 minutes.
  5. serve over cooked pasta. (we used whole wheat spaghetti). garnish with some red pepper flakes and fresh Italian parsley.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups sauce
