There are so many ways to enjoy pasta without tomatoes or tomato based sauces.
I also love carbonara and aglio, olio & peperoncino which have been mentioned already.
Some other examples are
-wild mushroom in creamy sauce, using either cooking cream or sour cream, with lots of flat leaved parsley.
-Pesto genovese
-pizzoccheri (hearty short tagliatele made with buckwheat, tossed with plenty of melting cheese, garlic butter and your choice of vegetables)
-quattro formaggi
-gamberetti(prawns) tossed in garlic butter, saffran and flat leaved parsley
-tossed and sauted with fresh asparagus and bacon, topped with aged pecorino
-cream of roasted pepper
-cream of roasted aubergene
-cream of artichoke

Yeah, I adore pizzoccheri, too!! I introduced the recipe earlier here, and I got the impression from the responses that the correct pasta is really hard to find outside Italy, or even buckwheat flour to make the pasta yourself!! Do you make it from scratch, or you can find the pasta in your area?

I'm going with death on a plate (the Alfredo). In a feeble gesture to health, I would toss a few peas in and some shrimp or chicken for protein.

seriously, the other alternatives mentioned above sound very nice.
