Artichoke Tomato Alfredo

Alfredo with Artichokes and Tomato

A oldie but a goodie!  It had been a little while since I made this but with some garden basil and tomatoes I couldn't resist.  You know funny thing.....it surprised me at how quick and easy it was to make.  The noodles took more time than the rest of it.  I just love super simple yummy gourmet (especially when you use fresh basil) tasting recipes like this!

make your own Alfredo Sauce Dairy Free

Artichoke Tomato Alfredo
one small bottle artichoke hearts (in brine, not packed in oil)
4-5 fresh tomatoes, chopped into large chunks
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic minced (or 1 tablespoon garlic powder)
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped (or 3 tablespoon chopped dried)
2 heaping Tablespoon whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (or more) rice milk
1 small handful raw cashews
Whole wheat fettucini, macaroni or spaghetti noodles (I prefer spaghetti)

Directions: Prepare fettucini, macaroni or spaghetti noodles al dente. Place onion, tomato, garlic and basil in a non-stick pan and saute in a little olive oil. Do not drain the artichokes take out half of them and cut them into small pieces. Then place the rest of the bottle of artichokes and the liquid in blender. Mix your flour and rice milk and add that to the blender also then add a small handful of raw cashews. Blend until very smooth. Add the cut artichokes and blender mixture into the saute; mix well and warm just until thickened. Top the pasta with the artichoke sauce.

Just made this the other day. My husband and I loved it! I think next time I make it, I'm going to add some chopped up olives to it just for an extra kick.

Love this one. Made it again tonight but this time used vanilla coconut milk (the beverage, not canned coconut milk) instead of rice milk. It was amazing!! Don't think I'll be able to go back to making it with rice milk after tonight : )

Tammie this is one of my all time fav's of your recipes. I was so excited that the kids loved it as much as I did. It is so creamy, tasty, love the mix of red and white sauce in it, I think using the juice from the artichoke bottle brilliant. Just served it to the inlaws and they couldn't believe it didn't have milk product!

I am making efforts to eat a mucusless diet, but it is too hard to not have my whole family do so with me. So, I was excited to find your site and this recipe. Trying new things is hard for my kids (as is with all kids I'm sure). They all loved this! Thanks so much for all the time you take helping others transition to mucusless eating.
