“I don't know where I got this recipe from but it certainly is delicious. I changed a few things as I generally do to suit my tastes. I topped this off with a mixture of 1/4 tsp. cumin, 2 cups bread crumbs and 1 cup shredded Vegan jack cheese. I also sprinkled some paprika on top for color. I didn't include the time it took to cook the pasta in this recipe.”
