Looking for a non-tomato pasta sauce...

I have some left over angel hair pasta to use up and I'm tired of a tomato based sauce....

Any suggestions?

extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, fresh mushrooms and peas sauteed in the oil and garlic, top with grated parmesan cheese. hot chili flakes if you like some heat.

to all the above add a dozen or two little neck clams and their broth from steaming, and maybe a touch of white wine sauteed in there too.

Do you have any dried mushrooms such as porcini, chantrelle, shiitake, etc.? Use the rehydrating liquid along with wine, cream, etc. to make a sauce.

Have you any creamy cheese? Put it on fire with just a drop of milk. If cheese is sweet, you can add some pepper. If it's something like Gorgonzola, not.

Another interesting one is this:
Brown some bacon in oil, together with some sliced onions, till they are white-brown. Add some tuna (can) and, if you like, some peas. Salt, pepper and parsley.
