SAVORY SUNDAYS- ZITI WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATO CREAM

Hey folks,

Welcome to this edition of Savory Sunday.  I got the following recipe from http://www.chooseveg.com/.  The author of this savory selection is Robin Robertson from her cookbook "366 Simply Delicious Dairy-Free Recipes".  This recipe sounds very much like the pasta dish I had yesterday at The Cheesecake Factory (I of course made sure it was vegan) and it was delicious, so that is what prompted the following selection!  Check it out!


ZITI WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATO CREAM


INGREDIENTS
1 lb. ziti

1 cup chopped oil-marinated sun-dried tomatoes

1 cup firm silken tofu, drained and crumbled

3 cloves garlic, chopped

4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small can marinated artichokes, drained and chopped

2 tablespoons fresh parsley

soy parmesan (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Cook the ziti al dente. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the tomatoes, tofu, garlic, basil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Process to a smooth consistency. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce and artichokes. Sprinkle with the parsley and soy parmesan, if desired.
