THIS WAS SOOOO GOOD! Seriously, one of the most delicious things I’ve had and much better than what I remember non-vegan baked ziti was. I got this recipe from Nora Cooks Vegan and I’m so glad I tried it out. It was a higher fat meal than I usually make from the fat from the cashews, even though I cut them by a third, and from the Rao’s marinara, but it was worth it for an every once in a while delish dish. I think the only changes I made were using whole wheat penne, a cup of raw cashews, and Rao’s sauce. I added sautéed baby Bellas and spinach to mine as well. I topped it with Violife vegan Parmesan instead of the cashew based vegan parm she used. It was creamy flavorful, and still got the delicious crust on top which is my favorite part. I think next time I would cut back even more on the cashews and use 1/2 cup of them. I also used dried basil and oregano in the cashew cheese mixture.

I highly recommend it!
