Stuffed [Vegan] Shells

There is nothing like a great pasta dish, and these stuffed shells are it. They are easy to make and quite satisfying. With a glass of wine and a salad, there might not be room for dinner conversation!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Box of Jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 140z can of tomato sauce
  • 1  can of tomato paste
  • 2 Garlic cloves (finely chopped or minced)
  • 1 tables spoon of fresh or dried parsley
  • 1/4  cup of vegan ricotta (prepackaged or homemade)
  • 1/4 vegan cream cheese ( I used Galaxy)
  • Fresh or dried chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step 1: In a large pot bring about 8 cups of water to boil. Throw in the pasta with half a tablespoon of oil, so they won’t stick together. Cook the pasta until it is almost done. (el dente) While the pasta is cooking, you can start making the cheese mixture and sauce.

Step 2: Preheat your oven to 375 – 400 degrees. Put a little oil in a medium size pot, heat at a low/medium temperature. Thrown in the garlic and let it cook for about 3 mins. (careful not to let it burn) Now you can pour in the tomato sauce and paste, stir until everything is blended well turn to a low heat and let it simmer.

Step3: Now the Cheese! It is actually very easy to make. Mix the vegan cream cheese and ricotta, (prepacked or homemade) toss in some chives and blend until creamy, salt and pepper to taste. It’s time to stuff! In a casserole dish spoon in a thin layer of the sauce, then take the cooked pasta and stuff each shell.Place them in the casserole dish and pour on the rest of the sauce. You can throw a little vegan parmesan cheese on top if you’d like!
