Serves

Ingredients

  • 1 can (400 ml) Amy’s Spicy Chili
  • 2 cups (480 ml) vegetable broth or stock
  • 2 cups (480 ml) dry pasta of your choice (I prefer macaroni for this dish, but we had shells on hand, so I used those)
  • CHEEZY SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup (75 g raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) tahini (sesame paste)
  • 4 tsp (20 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 medium sweet red pepper cored, seeded and cut in chunks
  • 1 cup (240 ml) plain unsweetened almond or soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) tapioca potato or corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) paprika
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) turmeric)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil preferably organic
  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you are using this as a sauce on its own (and not in this recipe) you can cook it over medium-low heat until thick, 5-10 minutes.

Cheese sauce:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you are using this as a sauce on its own (and not in this recipe), you can cook it over medium-low heat until thick, 5-10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Spray a 2-quart (2 L) casserole (one with a lid) with nonstick spray.

Measure out one cup of the cheesy sauce (save the rest for later) and pour it into a medium bowl along with the chili and broth. Stir to mix well.

Place the pasta in the casserole and pour the chili-broth mixture over all. Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover, stir, then replace the cover and bake another 20 minutes; stir once more. Pour the remainder of the cheese sauce over all, then bake uncovered for an additional 30-35 minutes, until bubbly and beginning to brown (if the sauce doesn’t brown as much as you’d like, you can always place it under the broiler for 5 minutes–this is what I did). Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 4-6 servings. May be frozen.

Most of the meal planning/recipe organizing options I had looked at either didn't have the ability to automatically create a shopping list, or didn't have an easy way to add other items to the generated list, or wanted me to follow their meal plans (we are ridiculously picky eaters). Plan To Eat has been amazing and we will definitely be subscribing when our free trial ends! Adding recipes was easy, the drag-and-drop meal planner is very similar to what I've been doing with planning our meals on Google Calendar, and the automatic shopping list saves me so much time! We put it to the test in the grocery store this week \xE2\x80\x94 my husband & I usually split up and each do 1/2 the store so we can get out quickly \xE2\x80\x94 Plan To Eat worked perfectly on both our phones! It's exactly the solution I've been searching for!

This is my favorite thing these days! Great for busy families that "don't have time to cook" and the best part is it makes the shopping list for you! A year subscription paid for itself in the first week when it kept us from eating out for a night. What a great idea.

I now plan my meals on Sunday and do a trip to the food store on Monday. I know what my family is going to eat all week and I am not running to the store every night to figure out what to make for dinner. Thanks you so much!!!!!
