Too funny. That is one of my favorites, too. It so reminds me of the SAD version--only better.

Now I have to try this recipie!
I used to enjoy the SAD version a little too much:o

sounds wonderful! what is the basic recipe for this?

Thanks for the review. The F. alfredo is on my list of things to make. The caesar salad is on the list too. The list keeps getting longer. :)

This is exactly what keeps me on raw 100%!! I'm nearing my 30-day mark and the *only* reason I've been able to keep up such a strict diet (meaning cutting out all my SAD favorites) is because there are so many absolutely YUMMY meals to try!! I am in LOVE with salsa guacamole, chilled in the fridge with equally chipped carrot sticks to dip in. I also have a chocolate nutmilk banana shake every single day that fills me up for hours & tastes delicious, yet no dairy in sight! I love going through Alissa's book when I'm hungry, or surfing the recipe section on this site - printing out all the recipes to try. Pizza is another favorite - using SchoolofRawk's herb crust with zucchini.
Totally YUM - when I'm tempted to get candy or chocolate, I know I can always whip up the most delicious chocolate with agave, chocolate powder, & coconut butter in a flash. I don't even need to "cheat" because it feels like I already am! I have to try that alfredo though....

I don't want to be a downer, but I wasn't crazy about it. I fixed it today for lunch. It was okay, but not something I want to make again. My sauce was really dry. I ended up making some almond milk to add to the nut mixture. That helped. But the garlic taste lingers and too many nuts for me. Plus the cost of macadamia nuts and cashews-$$$. :eek:
I hesitated to post this, (because like Thumper says, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all";) ) but I figure that we won't all like the same things. I'm sure there are others who love this and have it as a staple in their meal rotation.

ya its tasty but its sooooo rich. i can only have a tiny little pile. its amazing how much my stomach has normalized. i used to be able to eat, and i kid you not, 3 or 4 large steaks in a sitting. or 4 or 5 plates of pasta. i would routinely eat 2-5 pounds of food for a meal (i thought this was absolutely awesome and i weighed myself before and after just to prove it to people). now i eat like a handful of food and im good..

Tisha, I'm glad you wrote this. I think it's important to include all opinions of recipes because especially as a newbie, a person can think OMG it's going to taste soooo awesome!! And then they're really disappointed not because it's necessarily bad, but because their personal tastes are different. It's much better to have some rave reviews & some not-so-rave reviews so you can at least be prepared for disappointment.
Another really important tip for newbies: Make just HALF the recipe so if you don't like it, you aren't wasting alot of expensive nuts if you just don't like it.

This is So good. I just made it with sun seeds instead of the pine nuts because I didn't have any. I can't believe how delish this IS. My GOODNESS. This is what is keeping me raw, all these raw foods made into such good food.
I added about 1/2 or more of water, because the mixtue was WAY too thick, like almond butter or something. I also doubled the garlic and the braggs.
I also put the noodles in the dehdrator to warm them whilst I was preparing the sauce. SO good.
I made this recipe in the beginning when I first went raw and lost weight that week. It is a pretty heavy recipe though and I don't think I would make it again without someone to share it with because it is so dense. But it was good.

This was the very first recipe I made the day I went raw and I absolutely LOVED it! Alissa makes it on her DVD and the sauce is supposed to be thick--when you squish it into the squash/zucchini with your hands, it thins out.
It called for macademia nuts, which I have not been able to find locally. Pine nuts here are $12.99/lb at the cheapest store, $17.99/lb at the other. :eek: But I've found that pine nuts are pretty essential--the one time I made it without, the sauce just wasn't right, even when I added a dribble of olive oil. (I should say that I make it with 2cups of cashews instead of 1c cashew/1c macademias.)
This is one of my favorite recipes, but I haven't had it recently, though I just bought about 2cups of pinenuts so I can make two recipes! Now if I can just find zucchini! Is it out of season already???
And does anyone have a less expensive substitute for the pine nuts? I could have this more frequently!

I always tweak recipes to suit my own tastes--even when SAD. I added more liquid to the sauce for a slightly thinner, creamy consistency and added a grating or two of nutmeg (which I used in my former SAD version). Did not use garlic in it at all. I use macs and cashews and sometimes sub part pine nuts. Great coated and put in the dehydrator to warm slightly. AWSOME!

I also added some olive oil, about a TBS. or so. Gives it a smoother texture and adds a nice spicey touch.
This alfredo makes a great dip, too.

Could someone please post the recipe? Thanks.
08-28-2007, 08:12 PM
i did a search, and found this thread: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=16932&highlight=alfredo
there should be a few ideas in there ;)

Aw, Being. Your an angel. Thank you! I had a serious craving going on!
So I made this tonight ... I would be willing to make it again if I followed the recipe exactly.
I got home tonight and realized I didn't have lemon or garlic. I used lime juice and garlic powder. It doesn't taste bad but I'm not anxious to finish eating either.
I also think my Bragg's may be bad ..
