Submitted by: JSTOCKWELL

Introduction

Pureed silken tofu has an ultra-creamy, custardy texture that is perfect for sauces such as this, or as a base for dips and salad dressings. Look for it in the produce section of any supermarket.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    12-ounce package fettuccine
    2 tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    16-ounce tub silken tofu
    1/2 cup low-fat milk, rice milk, or soymilk
    1 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Grated fresh Parmesan cheese, preferably organic, or Parmesan-style soy cheese for topping

Directions

Serves: 6

Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Cook the noodles in rapidly simmering water until al dente, about 10 to 12 minutes, then drain.

In the meantime, heat the margarine a small skillet. Add the crushed garlic cloves and sauté over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are golden. Remove from the heat and discard the garlic cloves.

Combine the tofu and milk in a food processor and pour in the melted margarine from the skillet. Process until completely smooth and creamy. Combine the hot, drained noodles and the sauce in a large serving bowl and toss together. Season to taste with freshly ground pepper and toss again. Serve at once. Pass around Parmesan cheese to whoever wants some.
