    I'd never tried tofu before& was kind of skeptical, but this was very good! I halved the garlic & added about 6 oz. of frozen broccoli to the pasta as it was boiling. Served with a grilled pork loin - my husband went back for seconds and asked that I make this again. Not afraid to try tofu anymore. - 1/28/09

    Loved this recipe, added some broccoli and tofu cheese, cut the other cheese out, it was very good and also is a no meat meal. - 5/6/09

    Added spinach and a little bit of bacon. It was delicious - I like tofu but it didn't taste like it at all, so it's safe for tofu-phobics. I didn't miss the cream in the least! Cooking the garlic in the pan first like others suggested makes it even more fabulous. Will absolutely make again. - 9/7/10

    I loved this! So creamy, it really felt decadent to eat. I added more garlic powder, salt & pepper & fresh parsley. I served with a Quorn naked chick'n cutlet for an awesome, easy weeknight meal. Thank you! - 10/12/09

    Really good! Hubby couldn't believe it was tofu - went back for 2nds! I accidentally put in several times the garlic required, but it tasted fine. I used the oil in the recipe to saute the garlic instead of blending it in w/ the tofu, then warmed the sauce with it in the same pan. Primo! - 2/5/10

    I roasted the garlic & added a can of evaporated milk to give it a more "cream" flavor. I put it all in the blender until perfectly smooth & then let the seasoned tofu/milk chill for a couple hours before dinner. My entire family *loved* it but the tofu is my secret. (haha!) - 10/22/09

    Wow. Who would have known! I cooked the garlic in the oil first before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. Only had parmesan cheese and added a Tbs. of Italian spices. I will be making this again! - 10/3/09

    This was really great. This was my first attempt with Tofu and I wasn't so sure what wouid happen - but it was awesome. It was very garlic-y. So next time, I would saute the garlic before adding it - that should make it sweeter and less pungent. Even my DH liked it after whinning about tofu. - 7/14/09

    My first time making it turned out pretty good. Will try adding a few sodium free spices, and maybe broccoli with some chicken or shrimp next round to complete the package.
    Thank you!! - 1/29/10

    It tasted better the next day with some sea salt to knock out the slightly weird aftertaste of the tofu. I used whole wheat spaghetti instead of fettuccine and it made very large portions. - 5/16/09

    Sounds good - I'll have to try it with some chicken and added veggies. If you roast the garlic (don't peel first) in a pan, the bitterness goes away. Once you receive a few brown spots on the outside of the garlic - let it cool, then peel. - 5/6/09

    Several people are mentioning that they added milk or soy milk to make it less thick. I notice that step 3 of the recipe says to put "soy mixture" into a sauce pan. Was soy milk supposed to be an ingredient that was left out? - 2/27/09

    I was so happy with how this turned out! You can't tell it's made with Tofu, so kids eat it without any complaints. The only thing I did different was added non fat milk to thin it out a little and used whole wheat Penne Pasta. I would definetly make this again!! - 11/13/07

    Excellent recipe. I would add a little plain soy milk next time to thin it a little. Scrumptious! My husband even loved it and couldn't tell it wasn't loaded with cholesterol-laden cream! - 11/3/07

    Definitely a family favorite. My 6 yr old doesn't usually permit any sauce on her pasta - and thinks she doesn't like tofu. Both she and my husband loved this pasta. I added milk to thin the sauce, as well as some leftover smoked turkey and frozen green beans. Perfection! - 11/3/09
