vegan ingredients

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook pasta according to package directions.
**A note about the pasta–whole wheat is preferable, but I couldn’t find whole wheat ziti in the grocery store where I was shopping.**

In the meantime, steam the zucchini for 4 to 6 minutes.  Put the sausage in a skillet with the water and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, while breaking up with a spatula.

Mix the pasta sauce with the cream cheese and nooch.  It’s okay if there are a few lumps of cream cheese.

Drain the pasta and pour it into a 9×13 baking dish.  Add the sausage and zucchini and stir to combine.  Pour the sauce mixture over the top of the noodle mixture.  Smooth it out and sprinkle the Daiya cheese over the top.
