Rated 5 out of 5 by bsnowcpa from Rich and creamy, pretty healthy too This sauce had a wonderful texture, probably in large part due to the tofu - what a surprise! We like things a little spicier, so next time I'll add maybe 3/4 of a pepper. I put it on spaghetti squash and salmon burgers, I can see putting it on vegetables or zucchini noodles, sweet potatoes, chicken ... anything really. I plan on experimenting with using tofu in other flavor sauces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rumi from Nice Combination of Cream and Spice !!! I recently tried this sauce recipe and was really amazed by the taste. I must admit that I cut down on the quantity of cheese required in the recipe but still it turned out really good.
