Spaghetti in White Bean Sauce

Before I thought pastas only revolve around the common sauces like tomato, cream, mushroom and olive oil until I met this one, the white bean sauce. It is a new sauce on its own and it nearly resembles the Alfredo sauce but this one can be done in a vegetarian or even vegan way and it yields the same creamy delicious sauce.

Spaghetti in White Bean Sauce is a dish made with spaghetti noodles served with a creamy sauce made with mashed white beans mixed with cream, cheese and garlic. This was the first time I made them and I did like it, it’s quite different but sure is delicious!

    We managed to get hold of some gluten-free pasta here but it is not as nice, not worth using to cook this or any of the rest.

    How beautiful, and how utterly different. I’d love to try this.

    Can you use canned white beans for this. If so what do you suggest?
