Ingredients

For the Cashew Cream

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 sheets Explore Cuisine Organic Green Lentil Lasagne
  • 2 cups prepared tomato sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)

For the Filling

  • 15 oz canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

For the Cashew Cream

  • 1 This can be prepared ahead of time. Soak the cashews in 1 cup of boiling water for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the soaking water
  • 2 Combine the soaked cashews, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt and the ½ cup of reserved soaking water in a high power blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside or refrigerate until ready to use

  • 1 In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add salt to taste. Add the lasagna sheets and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often to keep them from sticking together
  • 2 While the pasta cooks, prepare the filling. Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Set aside until ready to use
  • 3 Once the pasta sheets are cooked, drain them and run them under cold water (if any of the sheet are stuck together, separate them carefully). Set them aside
  • 4 Preheat the oven to 375F. Combine the prepared tomato sauce and red pepper flakes (if using) and pour on the bottom of a 10.5 x 7.5 inch baking dish. Spoon about half of the cashew cream over the sauce

To Prepare the Cannelloni

  • 1 Place about a tablespoon and a half of filling on each pasta sheet and carefully roll each one. Arrange them on the baking dish, over the tomato sauce and cashew cream
  • 2 Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes
  • 3 Drizzle with the remaining cashew cream before serving. Serve warm
