Rated 5 out of 5 by ElizabethGG from An absolute keeper!! Followed the directions exactly but substituted the romano and parmesan cheese with plant based options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by manderj from oh so good. This is awkwardly delicious. I omitted the tofu (because who has that sitting around?) and just used homemade ricotta instead. I also doubled the amount of roasted red peppers, since that's the whole point, and added a dash of cayenne. Awesome over pasta, but also as a dipping sauce for roasted veg, with broth added for a creamy soup, or chilled as a toast-spread. Or sipped straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanadianMe from Easy vegan switch I omitted the cheeses except I added in vegan cream cheese, some fresh jalapeño and olives too, a big splash of wine fine tunes all the flavours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tropicteacher from Wow! I made this today with totally organic but substituted organic tomatoes instead of the peppers and added some sweet Marsala wine. Added chicken thighs cut into small pieces and served over linguine pasta. Didn’t get a picture because we devoured it! It was beyond delicious!
