Meatballs:

  • 1 tsp Italian herbs
  • 2 tbsp oil

Pasta Bake:

  • 4 cups dry pasta
  • 2 cups chopped mixed veggies (mushroom, onion, bell pepper)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 jar marinara sauce (approx 650 mL)
  • splash of oat milk or nondairy milk
  • 1 cup vegan cheese (for topping)
  • 1 batch meatballs (see above) or 14 store bought veggie meatballs

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all meatball ingredients except oil and mix to combine. Form 1-1.5 tbsp size balls of mixture and roll into meatballs. You should have about 14.

  4. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  5. Remove the meatballs from the pan. Add the veggies and oil and cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until veggies soften. Add marinara, oat milk, cooked pasta and meatballs and stir to combine.
  6. Add to a casserole dish, top with vegan cheese and bake 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Let stand a few minutes before serving.
