 ½ cup onion, chopped

Directions

How to make
1

Preheat oven to 175oC on fan bake

Cook the pasta in salted water and set aside to cool.
Sauté vegetables and TONZU Tofu in a little oil until onion is golden and tofu turns brown slightly (sprinkle with a little tamari sauce during the last minute of cooking for a little extra flavour if desired).
Mix the cooled pasta with the tofu mixture.
Transfer half of the pasta mix to a casserole dish and cover with half of the grated ZENZO Dairy-free cheese, repeat these 2 layers again.

Melt the margarine gently over a medium heat, stir in the miso or salt and flour, and cook for a few minutes.
Add the milk and water or stock, continue to cook over a medium heat until the mixture thickens and bubbles.
Pour sauce over the pasta in the casserole dish and add some halved cherry tomatoes onto the top.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes
