Vegan Baked Ziti
1 lb. dry pasta
6 quarts of water
2 links of Field Roast Italian Sausage, sliced
1 14 oz tub of firm tofu, well drained
4 Tbsp Vegenaise
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tsp lemon juice
1/2 Tsp sea salt
1 10 oz. tube of Mozzarella Teese, with 1” slice grated, the rest thinly sliced or chunked
6 large leaves of fresh basil, chiffonade cut
1 Tsp dried oregano
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a large pot, boil water. Once boiling, add dry pasta and cook to al dente.
While pasta is cooking, prepare the tofu ricotta. In a large bowl, crumble the drained tofu with your fingers. Add the Vegenaise, garlic, lemon juice, salt, 1” slice of grated Teese, basil and oregano. Mix well with a fork until all ingredients are blended. Set ricotta aside.
Drain pasta well, then add pasta back to the large pot. Pour in the entire jar of pasta sauce and mix to incorporate. Then add in the tofu ricotta and mix well again.
Pour pasta mixture into a 3 quart casserole dish, then top with slices of Field Roast Sausage. Place the rest of the Mozzarella Teese around the top in slices or small chunks. Loosely cover with foil, then bake for about 20-25 minutes until Teese is gooey and melty.
