  • I just had to comment to the poster MATAKAMALA- This recipe IS vegetarian. If it was dairy-free as well as meat free, then it would be VEGAN. Nowhere in this recipe does the poster claim that this is a vegan dish. It is simple to avoid rennet by reading ingredients. How ignorant are you? - 1/24/11

    how is this recipe vegetarian? there are eggs in it and some cheeses have animal rennet which comes from a lining of the stomach of animals , and alfredo sauce usually comes with eggs in it... so take the vegetarian off your label please .... you disgust me - 11/26/10
