When i was a teenager my favorite pasta dish was this creamy sauce they used to serve at macaroni grill. I remember it being really flavorful, garlicky, spicy and very heavy on the cream. Does anyone have a recipe or a variation on a recipe that might be good? I was thinking about using this PPK creamy red chard linguine recipe and adding a dose of cayenne & salsa and maybe a little tomato paste:

I also have a great alfredo recipe from the Vegan Comfort Food book that i use pretty regularly, it's silken tofu, nut. yeast, oil & garlic, but that one comes out tasting really heavy on the tofu flavor which is something i want to avoid.

I appreciate your help, and will post updates when i'm done!!

Yes I think a cashew based sauce like the PPK recipe would be perfect for that. Let us know how it turned out!

white beans is a good idea. my pasta came out really good, the flavor was awesome but the texture was really sticky after adding the cashew + broth combo. I was thinking i could smooth it down with some coconut milk.
