Fettuccine Alfredo with a cashew- and pine nut-based cheese sauce. So good! Not that hard to make, either (says the spouse who didn’t cook dinner this time around. Hey, I’m busy baking holiday cookies over here!)

The recipe’s from Tami Noyes’s American Vegan Kitchen, which I’m really digging. Every time I crack it open I find one, two, twenty more recipes I want to try. Spaghetti Pie, Italian Seitan with Fettuccine, Handitos, Fried Corn Salad, Homestyle Mac Salad, ugh. Someone kill me now! Or come to my kitchen and make me some yummy vegan foods. Either way.

Before I found Vegan Junk Food, I’d never tried Fettuccine Alfredo, vegan or otherwise. Ridiculous right? Especially considering my last name! Anyway, I only mention this because Lane Gold’s version is my only point of reference. I like the Fettuccine (really Linguine) Alfredo from VJF better, but it’s hardly a fair comparison – Gold’s recipe, loaded as it is with soy creamer and cream cheese, isn’t quite what you could call “healthy,” while Noyes’s version is hella better for you.

Still, this is definitely something I’ll make again. Or make once, since technically Shane made this one. But you get the idea.
