Food time (recipe #1)

Fettucine Alfonso

• 1 1/2 cups corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
• 1 1/2 cups soy or rice milk
• 2 tablespoons tahini
• 1 tablespoon onion granules
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 15 1/2 oz. can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained well
• 1 lb fettucine
• cracked black pepper

If using frozen corn, thaw and drain it well. Place corn, milk, tahini, and seasonings in blender and process until completely smooth. (This may take several minutes to completely pulverize the corn.)
Pour the blended mixture into a medium saucepan and stir in the beans. Warm over medium-low until the beans are heated through, stirring often.
While sauce is heating, cook fettucine in a large pot of boiling water until tender. Drain well and return to pot. Add the hot sauce and toss until noodles are evenly coated. Serve immediately, topping portions with a generous amount of cracked pepper.
