I added the broccoli to the bowties
another great recipe from Summerfest 2012

Finally, a Fettuccine Alfredo (ok ok, I chose to use whole wheat bowties) that is elegant, creamy, rich and easy to make.  The taste is amazing and I'll be making this again very soon.  Definitely good company fare.


1 cup raw cashews
2 Tbsp. raw pine nuts
1 1/2 cup water
4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/16 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper


In a blender, grind cashews and pine nuts into a fine powder.  Add water, lemon juice, garlic, nutmeg, and salt.  Blend until completely smooth.

Transfer sauce to a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk as you bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 7 minutes, whisking regularly.  Stir in black pepper.

Serve over hot pasta and garnish with parsley and fresh ground pepper to taste.
