For health reasons, I have been recently eating a mostly vegetarian diet and avoiding dairy. I've been trying to find recipes that my family and I can both eat, without me having to make 2 separate meals. This recipe was quite good. I used Bestlife buttery spread instead of the butter, and Trader Joe's Orgnanic Whole Grain Drink instead of soy milk. I didn't have a whole package of pasta, so I used one 15 oz can of navy beans and 1 cup of the grain drink. I pureed them both together to make it all smooth, because I knew there was no way my kids would go for the beans. (I also left out the asparagus and served broccoli on the side.) My 12 yr old son's favorite meal is shrimp alfredo linguine; I didn't use shrimp this time, but he liked the pasta! He had no clue that the sauce was made of beans! As far as that goes, my husband didn't suspect anything either. Taste-wise, I personally would give this 3 or 3.5 stars, but if this can fool the pasta lover in my household, then it gets 4 stars from me!
