Serves 6-8


1 lb. Elbow Macaroni, whole wheat

We prepare this recipe in our microwave oven, but it can also be prepared in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F.

Wash, peel, and dice the onions and place in a large covered baking dish.  Cook until the onions begin to become semi transparent (about 5 minutes in the microwave oven).

While the onions are cooking, place the water in the pasta pot and heat to boiling.

Wash the tomatoes and remove the stem ends and any blemishes or bad spots.  Cut into bite-sized pieces, and add to the onions when they are cooked.  Cover the baking dish and cook until the tomatoes are hot, but not cooked through.

When the pasta water boils, add the elbow macaroni, and cook until the macaroni softens, but is still slightly chewy.

Open the cans of beans and drain off the excess liquid.  Place the beans in the container of a high speed blender.  Add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and chipotle pepper (stem removed).  Cover and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are creamy smooth.  Use the tamper rod as necessary.

Combine the cooked and drained pasta and the bean sauce with the onions and tomatoes in the covered dish, and mix well.  Cover and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with a large tossed salad and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
