Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo is rated out of 5 by 4.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElizabethGG from An absolute keeper!! Followed the directions exactly but substituted the romano and parmesan cheese with plant based options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shar Lise from Easy vegan switch I omitted the cheeses except I added in vegan cream cheese, some fresh jalapeño and olives too, a big splash of wine fine tunes all the flavours.
