  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently (this can also be done in the microwave; use a tempered glass bowl, like pyrex, cook for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth). Remove from heat. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add tofu, onions, and carrot; drain. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl. Add peanut butter mixture; toss gently.

  • Cajun chicken pasta, it is too die for, so creamy and delicious... I also love my sausage sauce with spaghetti and garlic bread, yum... I also have a great recipe for vodka sauce. NONE of those are diet friendly so I never get to eat them =(

  • Any pasta cooked and drained, with any veggies, mix mayo and italian salad dressing.
