A creamy, peppery pasta sauce that's ZERO Points and can be made in just 5 minutes...a unicorn? No, just our secret ZeroPoint hero, tofu (we promise you won't taste it), to the rescue. Plus, you can freeze it for later. The sauce may separate when it thaws - but just give it a good whisk and it’ll be ready to use.
