Question Pasta sauce with no tomatoes

I have unfortunately discovered that cooked tomatoes make my arthritis worse, even in small amounts.

Any suggestions for pasta sauces that don't have tomatoes? So far, I can think of four.
  1. Fettucine Alfredo
  2. Pasta carbonara
  3. Kayelle's clams with linguine
  4. Dragon Lady sesame noodles

How about béchamel sauce?

Well that would work in lasagna, but I don't think it sounds appealing on its own over pasta.

just with oil and garlic or with other goodies added to that

Cacio e pepe

You could make a marsala sauce or a picatta sauce and use it with just pasta

Pasta Primavera. Replace the tomatoes with mushrooms or something else you like.

Look to other cuisines like Thai and Chinese that use noodles without tomatoes.

Last week, I made a pan sauce with chicken drippings and served it with orrechiette. After pan-roasting chicken thighs, I sautéed shallots and garlic, deglazed with white wine, reduced it, and added chicken broth. I reduced that and heated chopped artichoke hearts and grape tomatoes in the liquid (replace the tomatoes with something else). Then I stirred in butter to emulsify and topped the dish with parsley. It came out really well.

Taxi, I posted this recipe here a few years ago and you might enjoy it.
It will soon be fresh asparagus season.



************************************************** ********



Shrimp and Asparagus Pasta with Walnuts and Lemon. (serves 2)

7 ounces dried spaghetti (or pasta of your choice)
1/2 lb. cleaned raw shrimp
1 pound asparagus spears
1/4 cup toasted walnuts, finely chopped
2 or 3 large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Zest of one lemon
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a strong boil. Season with salt, then add pasta. Cook according to package directions for "al dente." Set aside about 1 cup cooking water, then drain pasta.
While water is coming to a boil, cut off and discard the tough ends of the asparagus. Cut the remainder into 1/3-inch rounds, leaving the tips intact. Heat olive oil and garlic in a large pan over medium heat for five minutes, then discard smashed garlic. Add shrimp, asparagus, salt, pepper, and 1/3 cup of the reserved pasta water. Cover pan and cook asparagus and shrimp until shrimp are just pink and asparagus is crisp tender to the bite.
Once pasta is finished, purée 1/3 of the cooked asparagus (reserve tips) and 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking water in a food processor, blender, or immersion blender until smooth.
Add puréed asparagus back to pan, along with rest of the asparagus and cooked shrimps. Mix in cooked pasta, lemon zest, and more pasta water as needed to keep the sauce loose. Heat on low for a minute or two to allow pasta to absorb some of the sauce. Serve immediately, topped with chopped toasted walnuts. ________________

Taxi, this recipe from Niki is one of my very favorites. I've used it countless times, just as it was written back in 2011, although I add a little white wine. It's super easy, no tomatoes and just delicious.

Turkey (or chicken) tetrazzini is basically béchamel sauce with poultry, vegetables and spaghetti noodles.

Another dish we like is chicken satay noodle salad. It's basically a Thai peanut sauce.
