Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, mushrooms and a good pinch of salt and cook until golden. Add the wine, sauce and pepper flakes and cook for half a minute.
Bring a large wide pot of water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook for 3 minutes. Mix. Add the cauliflower and potatoes on top of the pasta and continue to cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to preference. *See note
Drain, rinse in cold water. Remove the cauliflower and potato and Transfer the to a blender.
Add the rest of the alfredo ingredients to the blender. Add 2 tbsp of the mushroom onion mixture and blend until smooth. Blend for a minute, then rest for a minute and blend again.
Pour sauce into the mushroom skillet and cook over medium heat to bring to a boil to thicken. Taste and adjust salt and flavor. If the sauce thickens too much, add in some more water or non dairy milk. Mix in the fettuccine and serve. Alternatively, plate the fettuccine and drizzle the sauce generously and serve. Garnish with basil and pepper and optionally Vegan Parm.
To make this gluten-free, use gluten-free pasta. Omit the oils to make oil-free.
* I boil the cauliflower and potato with the boiling pasta. Its easy to pick them out as they are on the top. Or you can use a strainer. Add the veggies to the strainer basket and insert it in the boiling water if it is a large pot. Remove the strainer when done and you have al dente cooked cauliflower and potato. Alternatively, you can cook them in another pan with some water. Cover and cook until al dente, then blend with the sauce ingredients.
