i take some white wine in a pan, and when it reaches a boil, throw a couple of whole garlic cloves, throw some fresh clams in their shells and cover for 5 mins till they open... once they open uncover, squeeze a bit of lemon, and throw in some of the yellow peel (white part is bitter) and add a substantial amount of extravirgin olive oil, shake the pan so that the white wine, clam juice and lemoon juice emulsify into the olive oil and create a melted-butter consistency... then add your pasta, i choose spaghetti, you can use linguini that hve been cooked al dente.... most pastas cook in around 10 minutes, your whole sauce can be made in the time it takes to cook the pasta... toss with some fresh chopped parsley and serve

Carbonara (a sort of spaghetti or linguini with bacon and eggs, to over-simplify)
Linguini with clam sauce (and while it is called white, it is actually more green!)

My favorite pastas are only hot dishes, as I really dislike "pasta salad." So, that said, I like all manner of veggies with pasta... alone and in various combinations, and also seafood, especially clams with white wine sauce, and penne with broccoli and chicken.

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.
