I think this is a great recipe! I will definately try adding ingredients to it next time, i did add vegan parm to the "meatsauce" and melted some cheese on the top, i only had 370g of veggie ground and i added a little cane sugar to the crushed tomatoes....less bitter. I also broiled it for a few minutes after the 25 mins in the oven for a crispy top Reminds me of my moms baked macaroni! yum!


This was pretty okay, but kind of bland. I added an extra clove or two of garlic, and some eggplant. Next time, I'd add some more tomato, maybe even tomato sauce, definitely some more spices/herbs, and maybe some chili peppers or something.
