1 lb dried penne pasta
2 TBL olive oil
8 oz package fresh mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
1 clove garlic, pressed through garlic press
1 package Tofurky Italian Sausage (use 3 of the 4 sausages, diced into bite-size pieces)
1/2 cup pasta water (from penne you cook)
1 cup Silk Soy Creamer
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup SoyaKaas grated parmesan (soy parmy) in can
1 cup Daiya mozzarella cheese (divide into two 1/2 cups)

In large pot, cook penne pasta until done to your liking. Reserve 1/2 cup of this pasta water once pasta is done cooking. While pasta is cooking, in a skillet heat olive oil on high heat and add mushrooms and garlic and saute for 4 minutes. Add in diced sausage and saute for another 4 minutes on high heat. The pasta should be done at this point. Drain pasta in colander, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

Add 1/2 cup of pasta water, Silk creamer, salt and pepper to taste to the mushroom sausage mixture. Boil over high heat to thicken, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Turn on broiler.

Place pasta in 3 quart baking dish and pour mushroom sausage mixture on top. Sprinkle SoyaKaas parmesan and 1/2 cup only of Daiya mozzarella evenly over the top. Turn pasta cheese mixture in baking dish to gently combine. Lightly salt top of mixture. Finish off by sprinkling remaining 1/2 cup of Daiya mozzarella on top. Broil until cheese is melted and slightly golden brown in some areas, about 5 minutes.

Earth Balance soy butter
1/4 cup vegetarian refried beans
2 mushrooms chopped
3 slices of red bell pepper, chopped

In a large skillet, melt about 1/2 TBL of Earth Balance soy butter. Lay in one tortilla and circle in the pan to coat with soy butter. Flip over and cook the other side until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and lay uncooked side down on cutting board. Add another 1/2 TBL to pan and repeat with the 2nd tortilla and place on the side once done. Heat beans, mushrooms and bell pepper in microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and repeat process 1-2 times more to warm the bean mixture. Spoon bean mixture on cutting board tortilla (cooked side up).

Using a spatula, carefully transfer the tortilla back to the pan and cook the uncooked side for 2-3 minutes until browned. Turn over and repeat on the other uncooked side. Transfer to a plate and use a pizza cutter to cut into triangles. Garnish with fresh avocado slices.

Tortillas (medium sized)
Rosarita Vegetarian Refried Beans (1/4 cup per tortilla)
Bell pepper (1/8 per burrito), diced into small pieces
Daiya cheese (I like to use both yellow and mozzarella)
Olive oil to brush on top of rolled burritos
Scallions for garnish
Guacamole
Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay out tortillas. Spread in about 1/4 cup beans per tortilla, spreading it light to the edges. Sprinkle in diced bell pepper and Daiya cheese. Roll in sides of burrito and then fold over one end up into the middle, continuing to fold over again so folded side is now facing down. Continue to do this with as many burritos as you need. Brush the tops of each burrito with a very light amount of olive oil. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Once done, sprinkle the tops with yellow Daiya and keep in the turned-off oven to melt, about 2 minutes. Garnish with guacamole and Tofutti, scallions and salsa. Customize the inside veggies to your liking.
