Caprese Mac n' Cheese

with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Toasted Breadcrumbs

The tried-and-true combination of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, known as alla caprese, originates from the island of Capri off the coast of Italy. We elevate your favorite childhood dish with this beloved trifecta, using vegan mozzarella, fresh and sun-dried tomatoes, and garlicky basil pesto. A sprinkling of crispy breadcrumbs adds a crunchy final touch.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast the tomato

Preheat oven to 450°F. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil for pasta. Combine tomatoes, just half the garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in 8x8 baking dish and roast until tomato is soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside and set oven to broil on high for step 4. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil)

2
Cook the pasta and prepare the breadcrumbs

Add pasta to boiling water, stir, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse pasta under cold water to stop cooking process. Combine breadcrumbs, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in small bowl and stir. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil)

3
Make the sauce

Add butter and remaining garlic to same pot over medium heat and cook until garlic is fragrant but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add miso paste and flour and stir until mixture forms a paste. Add almond milk and a pinch of salt and pepper, whisk, and bring sauce to a simmer. Add mozzarella and cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, add pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and cooked pasta, and stir to combine.

4
Bake the pasta and serve

Transfer pasta mixture to baking dish with tomatoes and mix well. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and broil until breadcrumbs are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Divide caprese mac n’ cheese with sundried tomatoes and toasted breadcrumbs between plates. Enjoy! (TIP: All broilers are different; watch carefully to ensure breadcrumbs don’t burn.)
