Vegetarian Baked Ziti is one of my favorite dishes to make. It is a delicious and filling pasta dish that goes well with cheese and garlic biscuits. Vegetarian Baked Ziti replaces real meat with soy imitation meat and uses vegetarian cheese that contains no rennet or animal enzymes.
I use Boca ground crumbles, which can be found at most grocery stores. Whole Foods‚Äô 365 brand cheese specifies that it is vegetarian, unlike most cheese brands, even if they contain no animal enzymes or rennet. It is a great alternative to the original, non-vegetarian version.
The ingredients needed for this recipe are:
First, lightly salt a large pot of water, and bring to a boil. Pour in the ziti pasta, cook until al dente for about eight minutes, then drain.¬†In a large skillet, mix the onion and soy crumbles together and brown over medium heat. Then, add spaghetti sauce and simmer for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and butter a 9×13‚ÄĚ baking dish. Then, layer as follows: one half of the ziti, Provolone cheese, sour cream, one half of the spaghetti sauce, the rest of the ziti, mozzarella cheese, then add the rest of the remaining spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Bake this dish for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Pull out of oven when done, let cool, then enjoy!¬†The preparation time for this meal takes about 20 minutes. The cook time will take 35 minutes, and it will yield about 10 servings.
