Cheese sauce on fried pasta (Italian nachos!)

The best pasta sauce I ever had was in MIlan, Italy. It was a creamy walnut sauce that almost made me moan. The creamy texture and the unexpected delight from the walnuts comes to mind even now, six years ago. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

It will sound really strange! Peanut butter, Sriracha Rooster sauce, sauteed onions, soy sauce and freshly minced garlic. Kind of like Pad Thai but not quite.

My daughter made this over fettuccine once: Dark Chocolate, sugar, walnuts, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and 3 TB of rum. Very good, actually.

My favorite innovative pasta sauce is a peanut sauce concoction. I mix a soy sauce with chunky peanut butter . . . blend the two until smooth and have my own pad thai sauce. It is quick, easy, and tastes great (especially when you use the chunky peanut butter to add a crunch)! You can also add supplementary spices and additives like chili pepper and minced garlic if you want to add some complexity.

Sage brown butter sauce but I think this pumpkin one sounds much better!

I live with a little boy who does not like to eat/chew meats, but he loves pasta and noodles in all forms. We now make his pasta sauces with beets - which oddly enough he does like! We then mix in some cooked quinua to give him the missing protein and end up with a tasty pasta dish that he loves. The combination of tomatoes and beets is very good, and the nutritional value is high for this young man who is growing like a weed.

My kids love my honey mustard pasta salad. They asked for it all summer.

My favorite non traditional sauce is to make one fresh and kind of unconstructed, starting with raw tomatoes and garlic and throw in whatever else moves me and is around. Zucchini, basil, green pepper are often in the mix but I also like to use black beans and corn with a little cilantro; or I love to throw in some ground chuck and make it hot and spicy. Or creamy and cheesy. The pumpkin sauce sounds fabulous!

I love brown butter and sage on my pasta. I takes a little time to make it, but it is worth the wait!!

I love an avocado pasta sauce as a creamy replacement for traditional alfredo!

My favorite non-traditional pasta sauce is actually pesto sauce.

I recently found myself with fresh cilantro and fresh mint in my refrigerator that needed to be eaten lest it go bad. I through it in the food processor and turned it into a pesto with avocado oil, garlic, sunflower seeds (in lieu of pine nuts) and salt and pepper. The result? FABULOUS!!! I tossed it with garden vegatable fettucini and enjoyed every bite. I used it as a side dish to curried chicken with a coconut milk based sauce. It was to die for.

WALNUT SAUCE IS THE BEST!!! :) I make mine with ghee, walnuts, garlic, rosemary, parsley, chicken stock, a dash of parmesan cheese, and (the secret ingredient)...organic instant mashed potato flakes to thicken. Oh Yeah!

I love pesto as sauce...but instead of the standard basil, I actually make THAI basil pesto. The extra intense flavor, which has a hint of mint already, really amps up the pesto flavor.

I love vodka pasta sauce, but I think I will love this pumpkin pasta sauce because I love everything pumpkin and I love Whole Foods products the most!

Fresh herbs with some olive oil - simple yet really tasty with a blend of pasta and seasonal veggies!
