put both kinds of tofu in a colander to drain.
salt the water for the pasta and turn it on high. (use a ton of water—fettuccini tends to stick.)
place the garlic halves and the margarine in a small microwave-safe bowl...heat on low power (3 out of 10 on my microwave) for 3 minutes...let it sit for 2 more minutes.
when the margarine is ready, discard the garlic and add everything (except the pasta and the pasta water) to the blender...puree until thick and smooth and alfredo-ish.
taste & adjust the seasonings to your taste.
when the water boils, add the pasta and cook according to package directions...when the pasta has about 3 minutes to go, put the blended sauce in a microwave-safe container and heat it on medium power for 2-4 minutes...remove and stir.
when the pasta is done, drain it, put it in a bowl, pour the sauce over the top, and mix it all up.
