While in Italy I had a pasta sauce that was made with mascarpone and almonds (the almonds were ground fine) it had the look of Alfredo sauce. I cannot recall the name of the sauce. I have searched far and wide for such a recipe. Is anyone familiar with this sauce? If so, would you PLEASE share the name?

ricettegustose.it/Primi_sughi_vari_html/… no special name for it AFAIK, just "mascarpone e mandorle" meaning "mascarpone and almond" –  belisarius Oct 4 '13 at 19:12

@belisarius Your response should have been posted as an "answer", not a "comment" so that the question could be resolved. –  Allison Jul 29 at 9:44
@Allison In fact, I'm not completely sure about it "not having a name". I prefer to leave the answer to an Italian or someone more knowledgeable. –  belisarius Jul 29 at 12:07
