Italians are masters of food re-use, especially when it comes to pasta. If you have some lasagna sheets left over to use or if you have some broken cannelloni that are too cracked to hold any filling, you can re-use them in this dish. Maltagliati is the Italian for “badly cut” and includes any type of pasta that’s irregular in shape.

In many Italian households, maltagliati are home-made from scratch and the pasta sheets ate “badly cut” on purpose. However, if you break some lasagna sheets or cannelloni with your hands, you will pretty much get the same result.

That’s the very first step of this recipe: break up all your pasta into large, irregular pieces, then cook them in boiling water with a pinch of rock salt. While your pasta is cooking, slice the roasted red peppers and the sun-dried tomatoes. Heat the olive oil and the vegetable butter in a skillet, add the herbs, the fakon bits, and cook for one minute. Then, add the sliced peppers and tomatoes, and cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce and the soft tofu and continue to cook over low heat until your pasta is al dente. Then, drain the pasta and transfer it to the skillet.

Fold the pasta into the sauce and transfer a little pasta to the serving plates, just enough to cover the bottom. Sprinkle a bit of grated vegan mozzarella cheese and then top with the rest of the pasta. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan-like cheese and enjoy your maltagliati hot!

Cook the pasta

Bring a large pot of water to the boil, and add a pinch of rock salt. Roughly break the pasta sheets or cannelloni and add them to the pot. Cook according to the instructions on the back of the package - if using two different types of pasta, add first to the pot the one with longer cooking time and add the rest later.
