I am not crazy about the vegetarian sausge so I used the Boca meat crumbles that you can find in the freezer section at the grocery story instead. Easy to make and very tasty. My one year old and five year old ate everything on their plates. I used Daiya cheese which is vegan; the reviewer who stated otherwise is misinformed. I will likely make this at some point in the future for a larger get together; I think non vegans would enjoy it as well.
Great dinner for busy nights with ingredients that I mostly have on hand. I have never put sausage (vegan or otherwise) in my baked ziti before now and it was a great addition to the flavor as well as a way to work in some extra protein. Thanks for the Excellent recipe!
Soy mozzarella isn't vegan, so this didn't work for me. I have a dairy allergy.
