    Wasn't a hit with my non-vegan family, but I enjoyed it! Super easy when using store bought pasta sauce.

    Loved it! I added a little extra olive oil and some more seasoning in the blender, and I used a spicy marinara sauce. Will definitely be serving to guests as well!

    I followed the recipe exactly, except using macaroni noodles for the ziti. Unfortunately the family didnt like it. I put ketchup all over it to make the kids eat it. Maybe my spaghetti sauce wasn't flavourful enough. But I wont be trying this one again unfortunately.

    Tried this recipe swapping paneer for tofu :) hubby says it was like his "childhood blanket" comfort food now!

    Very good! I had to use elbow macaroni for the pasta and I added mushrooms

    It turned out pretty good. I didn’t mix the sauce with pasta, will do next time. I added lite life Italian sausage. Not bad, will make again.

    I was shocked at just how delicious this truly was. I brought it to a Christmas party because I knew there would be two other vegans there and our food choices would be limited if we didn’t go prepared. I must say, it was a hit and I can’t wait to make it again!
