Baked "ziti" W/ Tofu Shirataki

READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 8x8 (1.75qt oval is what I use) baking dish; set aside.
  • Tofu Noodles: Bring pot of water to boil, add well DRAINED tofu noodles and return to boil. Boil for two minutes and leave to drain in colander until needed. OR just rinse and drain noodles, then microwave for one minute and place in colander to drain while preparing remaining ingredients.
  • In a large saucepan over medium high heat, cook ground meat, onions, green pepper, garlic and black pepper over medium heat until meat is browned; drain fat. Add pasta sauce, crushed red pepper & Italian seasoning (if your sauce isn't seasoned enough) and cook until mixture is hot, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, cut tofu noodles into manageable pieces. Then add noodles to the sauce mixture and mix well. Stir in 1/4 cup of the Mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, mixing until well combined.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with remaining cheeses - 1/4 cup of the mozz, 1/4 cup cheddar and 1/4 cup parmesan. Cover with foil (or lid).
  • Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes. Remove foil/lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes until edges are bubbly. Allow to stop bubbling before serving.
