Baked Veggie Ziti

What you need: 

4 tablespoons olive oil (I use extra virgin, cold pressed)

2 (12-ounce) packages penne pasta, cooked (I use Field Day Organic Brown Rice Penne)

2 medium yellow squash, chopped

2 medium zucchini, chopped

1/4 onion, chopped

1 to 2 jalapeno pepper, to taste, minced (depending on how much veggies added)

4 cloves fresh garlic, chopped

1 (26-ounce) vegan pasta sauce (I use Field Day Organic Roasted Garlic) 

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

1 (8-ounce) package vegan mozzarella cheese (I use Daiya mozzarella-style shreds)

What you do: 

1. Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a 13" x 9" glass baking dish and then add cooked pasta.

2. In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add squash, zucchini, onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic; saute.

3. To the baking dish, add the sauteed veggies, pasta sauce, salt, and pepper. Take a spoon and gently toss with pasta, leaving most of the sauce on top.

4. Sprinkle all of the cheese over the sauce.

5. Cover and bake in a 450 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake another 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool & then enjoy!!! 

*Keep in mind, you can add any type of veggies you'd like!*

Delicious! I added Italian flavored seitan at the last minute and it served up fine. Will make again!
