Aunty Gwen’s Baked Cheezy Angel Hair Pasta with Golden ‘Cheese’ Tomatoes

Slide1

This dish will bring tears of joy to your eyes !  Well, if not, it will certainly make an impression !  I first tasted this from my adopted aunt many years ago.  She was half English and half Flemish – she made this dish with very fine pasta, then lavished it with lots, and I mean lots and lots, of smotherings of cheese, then butter, and then tomatoes.  She then baked it until totally golden, and we immediately entered heaven.  Kids love this, and it’s very easy to make, once you have the cheese done.  I used a combination of my own ‘cheddar’ and ‘mozzarella’ from my book (http://mouthwateringvegan.com/mwv-cookbook/)

Serve with a green herbed salad.

INGREDIENTS FOR CHEESE SAUCE

1 cups (310 mL) soya milk, or other non-sweetened milk)

1 Tbsp purpose plain flour (for a very thicker sauce, use 1 Tbsp) – see links above for gluten free flour

3 Tbsp nutritional yeast (available in the US from here, and in the UK from here)

2 Tbsp olive oil

½ tsp fine garlic granules

salt (don’t omit)

a knob of vegan butter

¼ tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp vegetable stock powder or granules (try Kallo – from here in the US, and here in the UK)

a little water if needed

OTHER INGREDIENTS

200g angel hair (cappellini) pasta, cooked, rinsed with cold water, and set asid

1 Tbsp vegan margarine

2 Tbsp olive oil

Himalayan salt to taste (available in the US from here, and in the UK from here)

4 cups grated vegan cheese of your choice (sorry it’s obligatory for this dish)

1 ‘beefsteak’ tomato chopped

extra grated vegan cheese for topping

METHOD

  1. First, grease a suitable oven-dish, and preheat your oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  2. Then make the cheese sauce. Place all the ingredients in a ‘milk’ pan, and whisk.
  3. Heat the mixture up, mixing virtually non-stop, until you have a thickish consistency.
  4. Lower the heat, and continue cooking for a further minute or so.
  5. Now mix the sauce and the angel hair pasta together in a large mixing bowl, add in the grated cheese, vegan margarine, olive oil and salt, and continue to mix.
  6. Spoon into your pre-greased dish, and place your sliced tomatoes on top. Add some more cheese on top, and place in your pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. Then increase temperature to 400ºF (200ºC), and leave in oven until beautifully golden on top.
  7. Allow to cool for around 15 minutes before cutting, and Enjoy !

    Hello, first time visiting your site. While I type I have your cauliflower cheese baking in the oven! Can’t wait and it’s smelling good. I’m getting so hungry looking at this picture of angel hair pasta – it’s the tomato and ‘cheese’ combination. Must try this too.

    I wonder if you could tell me what vegan butter is? I live in the UK and we have nothing that I’ve come across that is called that. Is it the hard margarine? Would really appreciate knowing if possible as it has confused me for a while. Thanks very much. Your blog has been favourite – I shall return as it all looks delicious.

    Hi Sara and welcome here. I am delighted that you have found and like my blog. The term ‘vegan butter’ is used to describe any margarine that is vegan – in the States they have a good one called Earth Balance, not sure if that is sold in the UK at the moment. However, any vegan margarine is fine, so long as you can use it to bake with (see instructions on the packet). Hope you enjoy this dish at some point and also the cauliflower cheese recipe ! Best your way and I look forward to your future comments on my blog ! ;)

    The cauliflower cheese was totally delicious, thank you. I made it with a small cauliflower and 3/4 of the recipe and ate it all myself for dinner! I will definitely be making again.

    I think I was confused because in the recipe above you mention ‘vegan butter’ and then vegan margarine lower down, so thought they must be different things. I have heard of Earth Balance but no, we don’t have it over here. I think the Pure range is the best known vegan brand here. You can also buy Tomor margarine, which is in a hard block but that is hard to find. That’s good for making pastry with.

    Thanks for letting me know Sara and sorry for any confusion – glad that was straightened out. I am so used to using both US and UK terms for foods as they are known in their individual countries ie courgettes for the UK zucchini for the US and so forth. I very much look forward to your future comments on my blog, and remember you can also make the cauliflower cheese with broccoli. Best your way and Cheers ! :)
