I Eat FoodAdapted from
1 1/2 cups whole wheat shell pasta
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
3 vegan hot dogs, sliced into coins and then halved
1 red bell pepper, chopped
14 oz crushed tomatoes
¼ cup ketchup
Generous ½ cup beans (I used great northern and pink)
1 tsp liquid smoke
2 tbsp molasses
¼ cup brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 375 convection. Cook the pasta until al dente, drain, and set aside.
Saute the onions and bell pepper for about 7 minutes, until tender.
Combine all ingredients except cheese in a casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, removing 10 minutes before done to top with cheese.
Japanese Sesame Green Beans
1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil
1 pound fresh green beans or long beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (baked at 350 for 3 minutes or so)
Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add the oils. When those are hot add the beans. Saute for 10 minutes. Add the soy sauce and vinegar, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in sesame seeds, and serve.
