Baked Pasta With Tofu Cheese (Vegan)

“More vegan comfort food! I modified this recipe from the Whole Foods Web site. In place of (or in addition to) the mushrooms try black olives, vegetarian pepperoni slices, bell peppers, artichoke hearts...whatever you wish. Works well with gluten-free pasta. Serve with salad and garlic bread.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to package instructions. Mix mushrooms into marinara. Drain pasta well and transfer to a 7-x-11-inch baking dish. Stir in olive oil and a cup of the pasta sauce. Set aside.
  2. Put tofu, nutritional yeast, mustard, onion powder, basil, garlic, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture reaches the consistency of ricotta cheese. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  3. Spread tofu mixture over the cooked pasta and top with remaining pasta sauce. Sprinkle with vegan cheese or additional nutritional yeast, if desired. Bake until bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve immediately.
