I would like to make this one my non-traditional pasta sauce after I try it and if I like it.

I like adding something new to my pasta sauce so that it isn't so mundane: sometimes, it'll be capers and olives; another time, marinated artichoke hearts with soprasatta; I think pumpkin would lend not only a unique flavor but also provide a heartier sauce.

My favorite "off the beaten path" pasta sauce is a lemon aioli mixed with capers and fresh asparagus!

My favorite non-traditional pasta dish was actually made for me at a Whole Foods class and we loved it so much that we went home and made it ourselves! It combined orange, nut butter, and tamari. It was served over soba noodles - I'm getting hungry thinking about it!

I never get tired of chopped Roma tomatoes, very good Kalamata olives, liberal chopped parsley, and small-cubed feta cheese over angel hair pasta, cooked precisely al dente. Adjust proportions to your taste. It is so refreshing!

I make a very good sauce with sauteed onions in olive oil and then add zucchini till it is cooked thru. I add some chicken stock and a little dry white wine salt and red hot pepper flakes. Toss to serve with grated parmigiana reggiano.Very delicious and satisfying!!

I don't know how non-traditional this pasta sauce is - but I call it "Whatever the Mood Calls For Sauce". I like to start with fresh or canned diced tomatoes, add olive oil, and tomato paste and then any veggies I have on hand or am in the mood for (carrots, roasted peppers or tomatoes, broccoli, garlic, spinach, celery, etc) . It's a salad and pasta all in one.

Leftover shell pasta tossed with leftover lentil soup makes a simple, complete protein vegan meal.

My favorite non-traditional sauce is what I call refrigerator pesto. I use up leftover kale or spinach and herbs to make a pesto and toss it with hot pasta.

The nontraditional ingredient I was taught to add years ago by a superb cook I was fortunate to know is grape jelly. Goes great in any tomato sauce - makes it velvety.

I didn't realize until now how traditional (read comfort food) I was when it came to a pasta sauce. Breaking out of the mold would be a welcomed experience. There appears to be a Party on the horizon before the holidays !!!! Thanks

I HAVE USED SEVERAL RECIPIES FOR MY PASTA SAUCE (GRAVY). ONE OF THE SIMPLIST IS AS FOLLOWS: IN A SMALL POT, PUT 1/2 CUP OF HALF & HALF (OR LIGHT CREAM), BRING TO LOW BOIL, AD PIECES OF DIFFERENT CHEESES, AND SPRINKLE PARSELY (OR BASIL), STIRRING UNTIL CHEESE MELTS INTO THE SAUCE. POUR OVER ANY PASTA AND SPRINKLE WITH PARMAGIAN CHEESE TO TASTE. YOU CAN ADD OTHER SEASONINGS TO TASTE.

roasted red pepper, eggplant, and garlic (pureed after roasting with olive oil, salt, pepper, and whatever other spices sound good.)

Our favorite nontraditional pasta sauce is a spicy peanut sauce that I make from scratch and toss with gluten-free brown rice fettucini or spaghetti noodles.
