    2 lg stalks of celery
    1 lg yellow sweet pepper
    1 med red sweet pepper

    2 lg Roma tomatoes

    2 c ( 500ml ) Organic Soy Milk
    3.5 oz ( 100 gr ) soy flour
    3 tbsp ( 45 ml ) soy margarine
    Fresh ground black pepper ( I use a tbsp )

Directions

Makes 9 3 x 4 inch Servings!

Let's get Going!

Bring to boil 2 qt ( L ) of water in a 3 - 4 qt ( L ) saucepan. When it is at a rapid boil add the 2 tbsp of sea salt to the
water. Pop in the penne pasta & let cook for 16 - 18 minutes & then drain & toss a little Olive Oil thru.
While the penne is cooking lets dice the onion, celery, Roma tomatoes and fresh mushrooms. Deseed the 2 sweet peppers & dice them as well.

Take a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish ( nice and deep please!!! ) , brush sides & bottom with a light coating of olive oil & start layering in your diced veg. Spread the 3.5 oz ( 100gr ) of shredded Goat's Milk Mozzarella over top.

Go back to the cooked penne - drain & immediately add in the full 4.5oz ( 140 gr ) of goat's milk soft Peppercorn encrusted cheese & stir thru the penne completely. Dump this lovely infusion over top of your fresh veggie layer & spread evenly.

Back 2 the Stove!! Time to make your Roux!!

3tbsp of the soy margarine into a 2 qt ( L ) heated sauce pan ( medium heat please ) adding in the soy flour when melted & stir ( wisk ) vigorously. Then slowly add in your Room Temp. Organic Soy Milk ...wisking frequently..let build up density & add more soy liquid..repeat process until 100% of Organic Soy Milk is utilized. Pour your rich, thick Roux over top of your meal & level out if necessary. Top with Freshly grated Goat's Milk Hard Cheddar and freshly ground black pepper. ( All of this only takes 30min! ) Then pop into your Pre-heated 425 deg oven for the remaining 15 minutes on the clock and You Are Done!

Please enjoy with Family & Friends!
