Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by manderj from oh so good. This is awkwardly delicious. I omitted the tofu (because who has that sitting around?) and just used homemade ricotta instead. I also doubled the amount of roasted red peppers, since that's the whole point, and added a dash of cayenne. Awesome over pasta, but also as a dipping sauce for roasted veg, with broth added for a creamy soup, or chilled as a toast-spread. Or sipped straight.
