Jason's Gourmet Penne Pasta Casserole
1 pound penne pasta, cooked according to package instructions
1 pound veggie crumbles (I use Morningstar Farms Burger Crumbles)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 - 6 ounce cans tomato paste
2 cups water
1/3 cup red wine
1 tablespoons vegetable stock concentrate
2 cups grated vegan mozzarella cheese
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2) In a saucepan, cook onion in olive oil. Stir in veggie crumbles and garlic, stiring to combine and cook. Add tomato paste to pan and cook until paste begins to change from the red color to a more orange color. Stir in water, wine, and vegetable stock concentrate. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes until flavors are combined and sauce thickens.
3) In a casserole pan, layer 1/2 of the pasta pasta, then 1/2 sauce, and 1/2 cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and heated though.
