Vegan Stuffed Pasta

‘Ricotta’ stuffed pasta was the main for my valentines day meal ❤ ALSO a great dish to impress guests, even non-vegans will not be able to tell the difference between ricotta and the ‘cheese’ used here!

I usually am not a fan of mock meats or cheese but this mixture was PERFECT!

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook shells according to package until slightly underdone. Drain and rinse with cool water to prevent sticking.
  2. In a pan cook the onion, garlic and parsley until golden. Once done season with salt & pepper
  3. Preheat oven to 180 C.
  4. The Ricotta: With a food processor process the tofu and nutritional yeast until smooth. Next add in the onion mix and mix together with a spoon, finally pour lemon juice over the mix
  5. Pour a little sauce in the dish to just cover the bottom (this will help the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the dish). Use a spoon to fill each shell with the tofu  ricotta mixture, and lay each shell in the dish. Pour leftover marinara evenly over the shells.
  6. Cover the dish with a piece of tinfoil, poke several air holes, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes

Sahtein!

  1. YUM!! I so have to try this. My omni hubby misses cheese more than meat, lol – I do the cooking so I get to make what I want and I am Vegan! It is always nice to be able to try others Vegan recipes. 🙂 Thanks for liking my Vegie Pancakes (Gluten Free/Vegan/Vegetarian) recipe.
