Time: 30 min⁣
Serves: 6⁣

Ingredients:⁣
1 package @eatbanza pasta ⁣
1 package firm tofu, pressed⁣
1 clove garlic, minced ⁣
1 Tbs olive oil ⁣
3 Tbs nutritional yeast ⁣
1 tsp oregano ⁣
Juice of 1/2 lemon⁣

A pinch of brown sugar or honey if not vegan⁣
Jar of @carfagnasmarket original pasta sauce ⁣
1/4 Parmesan cheese (if vegan use follow your heart parm) and a little more⁣

Directions:⁣
1. Preheat oven to 375 and while it’s preheating cook pasta al dente by directions on box ⁣
2. At the same time add tofu, garlic, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt/pepper, sugar/honey, and oregano to a food processor and blend until smooth (this is your vegan ricotta!) ⁣
