This creamy sauce is so simple and incredibly delicious over zucchini noodles or any other type of julienned or spiroolied vegetables. If you prefer a salad dressing instead, simply add more water. I wish I knew who originally published this recipe so that I could give credit.

Recipe Directions

Throw all in blender & blend all until smooth. Makes 3 cups. Serve over veggie pasta or a vegetable medley or add more water to make a creamy salad dressing.

Tweedle's Review

Better Than Alfredo Sauce
5
5 out of 5

I've made this minus the pine nuts... so so good. Macadamia nuts are the best for making alfredo, I think. If you don't have mac nuts, I don't think it would be the same...definitely try it with mac nuts like the recipe says, if you haven't!

Made this for lunch....YUM YUM YUM! I, too, used cashews in lieu of macademias and I also added a few sun-dried tomatoes and about a tsp of nutritional yeast (i know many here don't use that stuff, but I've got 6lbs worth to use up so...). I served it with zucchini noodles, and it was delicious and filling. It makes alot so I plan on having it for lunch and maybe dinner tomorrow. Thanks for sharing Pam!

VERY GOOD! I didn't have enough Mac nuts, so I used an Avocado as a filler, lots of lemon and thyme. Had it over zucchini and spinach.

Kundalalita, this makes a really good salad dressing. I also plan to try it one of these days on zucchini that has been diced to macaroni-sized cubes and dehydrated slightly to make it chewy like macaroni. Another idea is for a white "cheese" pizza. Or a sauce for nutloafs and burgers.
ilovesnowie, I haven't tried it with oregano but it sounds very good.

Delish! YUM! I made it with less water and oregano in lieu of thyme. Making this alfredo with less water and pouring it over salted zucchini thins the sauce anyway making it even more delish! :-)~

Yes zhanna8, it's really good with zucchini. I like to salt the zucchini noodles and allow them to sit for about a half hour or so until they lose some of their liquid. If you make the noodles using only the outside of the zucchini (not the seedy inside) they are quite sturdy and you can gently wring them out.

So glad this recipe is getting good PR. It is one of my favorites. Sorry I missed earlier question about soaking. No, don't ever soak macadamia nuts or pine nuts... they don't need it and taste funny afterwards. So, this recipe is a great standby when you want something with nuts but didn't do any advanced planning.
Cashews sound good, too. I haven't ever made it with cashews but I'm going to try. The combination of macs, pine nuts and lemon juice give it a really cheesy flavor. Gosh... I'm making myself hungry!

Pam, this was delicious!! I didn't have macs, so I substituted cashews, but I'll bet it's even better with the macs. My hubby thought the garlic was a bit strong (he's not a garlic fan nor is he yet a raw fan), so I adjusted the next time. We love this!

Wow!! This is indeed amazing!
I can't afford macadamia nuts so I used cashews.
I used it on zucchini noodles and added a little tomato sauce made from rehydrated tomatoes.
Yum!
I like this even better than my other favorite the Spring Onion Cheese

OMG! This was awesome. Hard to believe you can make pine nuts taste like cheese. Amazing. Will make again and again. Easy to make too!

This is so yum! Thanks for sharing. If you don't like a lot of garlic, just use half a clove.

Pretty good. I did not have enough macadamia nuts, so I used what I had then substituted cashews. I served it over zucchini noodles. We added some black pepper also.
