Baked Ziti

Baked Ziti. So simple, yet so satisfying. A warm, creamy, comfort meal that you need in your life. This is a household favorite + a household staple. & Momma especially loves how quick & easy it is to cook up!

Ingredients:

-Tomato sauce (either jarred or homemade)

-Ziti noodles

For the Vegan cheese:

-2/3 Cup cashews

-2 1/2 Cups water

-4 Tablespoons tapioca starch (also called tapioca flour)

-6 – 8 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

-2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

-10 Tablespoons coconut oil

Directions:

-Cook pasta  according to box instructions. Drain & set aside

-Boil the cashews in water for 8 minutes. Drain & set aside

-Place all of the cheese ingredients in a blender or food processor & blend until it’s all liquid (if your coconut oil wasn’t melted, it can seem like the cheese sauce is “curdled”, but when you heat it up it will become completely fluid)

-Pour the entire mixture into a small pot & bring to a boil, stirring constantly

-Once the structure gets firm & becomes a little bit stretchy (like diary cheese), your vegan cheese is ready

-Mix tomato sauce, pasta, & vegan cheese in a large bowl. Stir until all ingredients are fully mixed together

-Transfer to baking dish

-Preheat oven to 350°F & bake 15 – 20 minutes
