Veganmadre has a really great lasagna recipe and pizza dough with white pizza sauce recipes posted and CG has a great creamy sauce recipe for pasta posted. :tongue8:

I use the cheeze sauce recipe below to mix with mashed tofu for a great shell/lasagna stuffing. You can add chopped spinach & other veggies to make it even more filling.

I use 1/2 the cheeze sauce recipe for one block of tofu.

Cheeze Sauce

7 oz. jar roasted red pepper, drained
1 1/2 cups raw cashews
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes (or savory yeast)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce or Braggs amino's
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini

Put all ingredients in a blender & blend till smooth.

This makes more than I usually need at one time, so I freeze half of it & it defrosts just fine. A friend on another forum made it with no water & used it as a spread to make grilled cheese sandwiches.


There is a recipe book called 150 Vegan Favorites by Jay Solomon. In it he has a terrific red garlic sauce recipe. If you're interested, I'll post it. It is very easy & makes enough for shells or lasagna or pizza!

I don't know the exact measurements:
grape tomatoes
olive oil
garlic
pasta
salt/pepper

1. cut and squeeze tomatoes.
2. eat tomatoes
3. buy more tomatoes and repeat (but don't eat them this time!!!)
4. toss with olive oil and salt/pepper

Ok, this is where I have NO idea how to make this. My uncle (this is his recipe) usually cooks up the garlic with the tomatoes (in the oven), so I guessing that whatever you cook garlic at you can cook the tomatoes.

5. cook until garlic is ready
6. toss with pasta

mmmmm..... my favorite dish!!!

I just did the above recipe tonight, but also added slightly steamed squash (your choice of yellow or zucchini) and fresh parsley. I tossed with an olive oil vinaigrette (with basil). I didn't have grape tomatoes on hand so I chopped an organic tomato and used lots of garlic. Mmmmm, very yummy. (pasta was also high fiber whole wheat spirals). I served it with sliced peaches today (because I was short a serving to complete my day) but I imagine a baby spinach side salad would go well with it.
