Friday – Pumpkin Baked Ziti with Carmelized Onion and Sage Crumb Topping

That’s quite a name for a recipe, but in this case the size of the title reflects the depth of delicious taste.  Another one from Veganomicon. Unfortunately, I think my camera skills are getting worse instead of better.

The base here is not ziti, but penne, just plain penne, nothing fancy. The sauce is an amazing meld of pumpkin puree, cashew ricotta, and carmelized onions. To top it off, bread crumbs made from my own homemade bread, walnut crumbs and herbs, warmed and Earth Balanced (not buttered) and sprinkled on top. So many delicious tastes and textures in every bite.

The recipe says it will take about an hour, and maybe if I had had the cashew ricotta and bread crumbs already made it might have, but it took me about 1.5 hours start to finish, and I am a fast cook.

The accompanying bread is definitely not mine. It is a Froment from Boulangerie La Vendéene.

And now for a gratuitous cat picture:
