This was really good. My husband’s response was, “Best meal I ate in a long time.” And, he is a meat eater. At first it was really liquidity. But, don’t be worried. I wondered if I did something wrong, but reducing the liquid through simmering it thickened it like real Alfredo sauce. Can’t wait to try the baked beans recipe.

I love it. I made vegan lasagna using the Alfredo Sauce instead of tomato based pasta sauce. My son liked it. Thank you!

Hi Anne, Do you by chance know the order number or old email address that was used in the paypal transaction? Our ordering system allows for resending download links to updated email addresses. I just need to know the order number or email address that was used for the purchase so I can find the order to issue the new download link email to your new address.

Is almond milk ok to use in place of soy milk?

Mike,
made the sauce using almond milk, texture was still a little grainy. I thought this might be related to the almond versus soy milk. Sauce taste is interesting but I was disappointed with the soy fetticini noodles. I will try some sauce on whole wheat fettucini. 8/9/18.

I liked this as well!! The problem I had was my gluten fettuccini stuck together in a big clump. I also added broccoli to my sauce and next time I make it im definitely going to get that Onion powder from Amazon!

Part 2..…. I tried another gluten free fettuccini that worked perfectly! Not only did I add broccoli I added extra onion and garlic. If I didn’t forget mushrooms at the grocery store I would have added that too!! Love this recipe!

Jill, what about freezing the sauce? I would love to make a big batch like that and freeze it, because it is just my husband and I so I could portion it into freezable containers for future use. Does it freeze well, or at all? Recommendations?

I haven’t tried freezing it and my guess would be that after it defrosts, it might separate and be chunky. =(
