Baked Ziti

What you need: 

8 oz. seitan
2-3 cups of mushrooms sliced
25 oz. jar of tomato sauce
1 box extra firm silken tofu
1/3 cup fresh basil roughly chopped
2-3 Tbls. fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 box ziti (16 oz.)

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cook Ziti according to package directions and drain when finished.
Mince the seitan and mushrooms in a food processor until course and crumbly. Pour mushroom and seitan mixture into a large saucepan and stir in tomato sauce. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for about 10 minutes.
In a food processor, puree the tofu, basil, lemon, olive oil, and salt and pepper until consistancy is similar to ricotta cheese.
Spread some of the tomato-seitan mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking pan so that it coats the bottom.
Combine the drained Ziti, tofu mixture, and remaining tomato-seitan mixture in a large bowl and mix gently to combine all ingredients. Spread evenly into the 13 x 9 inch baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.

I am new to being a vegan. I made this, and my daughter came by, and had some with me. We both liked this. She will usually only eat a little, but not this. She asked to take some home. Its a keeper.
