    His daughter's Note:

    Mmmmmm. This recipe is a combination of Joanne Stepaniak's "Unstuffed Shells" from Vegan Vittles and Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero's "Cashew Ricotta" from Veganomicon. The cheese is a non-dairy dream. Creamy and rich.

    1. 1
      In a food processor, blend together the cashews, lemon juice and olive oil until thick and creamy. (A Vitamix works well for this.).
    2. 2
      Add the cashew cream to the mashed tofu along with the parsley, basil, onion granules, garlic granules and salt. Mix well. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Place the tomato sauce in a small saucepan and heat until boiling. Then reduce the heat to low and cover saucepan with a lid to keep the sauce hot.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to instructions on package. Drain pasta and return it to the pot.
    5. 5
      Stir the reserved tofu ricotta into the hot pasta, tossing well until it is evenly distributed.
    6. 6
      To serve, spoon pasta onto plate and spoon tomato sauce on top. Enjoy!

      Made for NKOB Game - I LOVED this...I pressed my fresh tofu under a stack of books 'cause that is how I always prep it then seasoned it pretty much as suggested only adding a bit of fresh garlic, red pepper flakes, nutmeg and nutritional yeast...ended up letting it sit overnight in the fridge {- not planned but pasta was not going to happen that nite- worked out 'cause flavors set into "cheez" nicely}...used spinach penne and a homemade tomato sauce with tons of spice and veggie bits in it ...EXCELLENT DISH...I highly recommend this...I am not a big fan of "heavy" pasta and my husband is...this is a perfect compromise for us as it is all the flavor without the flubber :) FABULOUS Thanks His daughter!!

      We were not totally keen on this - it seemed a little bland. We added salsa to the top of ours. And, a friend suggested adding frozen chopped spinach, cherry tomatoes and Italian seasoning.
