SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this again, but with soft tofu...and it was really great. I added hot pasta water, a bit of soy milk, 4 big cloves of sauteed garlic, and I accidentally (kind of) added the green onions into the blender with the garlic..but it worked out really well. I added lots of s, p, and basil. The texture/consistency was just about perfect. I heated it on the stove, then mixed it in with spinach pasta.  :P

To be quite honest, I didn't care for this. It may be because of how I cooked it though... I used it as a sauce for a pasta casserole dish. I followed the recipe until the cooking part, and instead mixed it with my noodles and veggies in a casserole dish and heated it in the oven. I thought the texture was fine, but there was no taste.

This was awesome! My husband and all of my children ate it up!

My daughter even had a non-vegan friend over and she loved it too!

Thank you so much for such a great recipe!

"omg it's alfredo!"
Yeah, it tastes like the real thing!!
I added a lot of soymilk to thin it out, some garlic powder, and vegan parm.
Topped it with sauteed red peppers and mushrooms.
Thanks!!

This is really good! I actually used extra firm non-silken tofu..and it came out fine. I added quite a bit of soymilk to make it creamier (and it probably would have been creamier with a softer tofu), but it was delicious. I used four large garlic cloves, just a little oil , and sauteed mushrooms and rainbow chard. I added the sauce to my vegetables, and added lots of s and p, basil, green onions,  and some garlic powder. I used linguine b/c it's what I had.  ;)b

This is great!!! My husband who does not like change and loveeess meat, loved it! I did not have parsley or basil but it was still great. I also blend the onion (because my husband hates onions) and I add a few squeezes of fresh lemon..  Yumm yumm :)

I'm no tofu expert, but I wouldn't.  The texture is a little rough even with soft tofu.  Firm tofu that's been frozen wouldn't cream well at all.

I actually have a question. I have a piece of tofu in the freezer and I was looking for a recipe to use it. I think its firm and, being in the freezer, it's going to have that chewy texture. Do you think it would work in this recipe?

That's what I figured. Okay, I'll just whip up a homemade "meat" sauce with the tofu instead and remember to buy a small Mori-Nu silken tofu for this especially; I really would like to try it.

Thanks~ <3
