This easy-to-make sauce captures all the rich deliciousness of Alfredo without the dairy. If you are a traditionalist, serve over hot pasta and garnish with parsley and fresh ground pepper. For the more adventurous, try it over veggies, mixed with tomato sauce, or even use it as a creamy soup base.

Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

1 cup raw cashews
2 tablespoons raw pine nuts
1 1/2 cups water
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/16 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
4 cups cooked fettuccine (or other pasta of your choice)
3 tablespoons freshly minced parsley

Directions

In a blender, grind cashews and pine nuts into a fine powder. Add water, lemon juice, garlic, nutmeg, and salt. Blend until completely smooth.

Transfer to a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk as you bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 7 minutes, whisking regularly. Stir in black pepper.

Serve over hot pasta and garnish with parsley and fresh ground pepper to taste.
