I don't know how "non-traditional" it is, but I love a simple lemon-garlic-extra virgin olive oil sauce with angel hair, spinach and pignolis.

I like to make pesto using broccoli and cheese - it's very healthy and not greasy, like some pesto sauces can be.

Basil pesto would probably be my favorite or just something simple like olive oil and lemon juice.

My favorite non-traditional pasta sauce begins with a fairly conventional Lasagne Bolognese Alforno sauce, but takes a different direction with the extra ingredients I add according to my own taste. These include a substantial amount of brown sugar, free-range turkey instead of beef, lots of green peppers, lots of Vidalia onions, and extra black pepper.

I love using tomato soup as a base for meat sauce with basil and oregano. It's like the grownup version of spaghetti-os

Add whipping cream to an otherwise traditional pasta sauce and you will get compliments galore!

It's great to go to the farmer's market and whole foods and see what is in season. Bring all the ingredients home, throw it together, and top it with one your delicious cheese options and there you go! Never traditional...always fresh.

My favorite sauce uses avocado! It's a creamy pesto with basil, pine nuts, avocados, garlic, spices and throw in some grape tomatoes for garnish.

My favorite non traditional pasta sauce is actually or pumpkin pasta! Pumpkin purée, heavy whipping cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and some salt with ravioli. Delicioso!

My favorite non-traditional "sauce" is to heat up the cast iron pan, add a little olive oil, and toss in a bunch of tiny tomatoes - sungolds, grape, whatever... and let them get a little browned, or burst open, until they are hot and sizzly, then pour them over the pasta with some good olive oil, some cracked black pepper, and shaved parmesan. Yum!!!

I love just about anything made from pumpkin, including this sauce, which I sampled in my local whole foods a couple Weeks ago. My favorite pumpkin dish is from a Japanese restaurant back in my home town of Seattle. It is a pumpkin fried rice that is served in the pumpkin shell, so you can scrape out every last bit of pumpkin. Yum!

Hmmm....braised greens, cherry tomatoes, lots of garlic, a good olive oil, spicy sausage, steamed broccoli, and a grating of yummy cheese like grana padano. But I could imagine pumpkin, black bean, some of that spicy sausage, and - oh, yeah - a grating of yummy cheese like grana padano.
