creamy sauce for pasta needed....

that's made without using dairy products?
Any ideas please?
Can use plain yoghurt and any goats or sheeps milk/cheese but nothing dairy.
I want to make a pea and gammon pasta dish but not too sure how to make a nice creamy sauce. Would be grateful for any ideas.
many thanks.

non dairy pasta sauce

have you seen in tesco/waitrose ans sainsbugs they all sell alpr soya single cream - and they have alternative to double cream.

therefore you can make exactly the same sauce as you would normally - but with soya products.

non dairy pasta sauce

or, I found this.

this make loads, enough for 5 peeps.

225g silken tofu
350ml soya milk
2 tablespoons soya margarine
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast -A popular brand is Marigold Engevita, from health food shops.
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 dessertspoon dried dill
salt to taste
4 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon cornflour

Crumble tofu into a blender or food processor. Puree briefly, then add the soya milk, margarine, garlic, nutritional yeast, paprika, dill and salt. Process the mixture until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook over medium heat until it comes to the boil. Combine the cornflour and water, pour into pan with the sauce. Continue cooking over medium heat until sauce has thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool slightly, adjust flavours to taste and serve over pasta or roasted vegetables

Soya also a no-no

I'm really sorry but should have mentioned they can't have soya either :(
It's a bit of a nightmare but I think I have seen Goats cream in Waitrose so will try that - just wondered if plain yoghurt would work in place of it as diet needs to be fairly light.
Soya seem to be throwing up a few problems according to the hospital nutritionist and they are now saying it's not the wonderfood everyone first thought.....you just can't win can you?
Thanks for taking time to reply - much appreciated.

Yogurt as a sauce

I have a Sainsbury recipe for Mexican pasta. The rest of the ingredients is a sort of lasagna and the yogurt sauce as the Bechamel. It takes 300 mls of Greek yogurt and is mixed with two eggs, poured over the other ingredients and baked in the oven. Not sure if this helps.
