Leftover bread cubes (or stuffing mix) form a crunchy crown on top. Ingredients 1/2 cup vegan butter or dairy-free butter substitute 2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for 4 to 12 hours, drained 12 ounces cavatappi or rotini pasta 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced 1 teaspoon fresh thyme 2 cups yellow onion 3 clove cloves minced garlic 1/2 cup white wine 1 cup cooked spinach or leftover greens 3 cups turkey, shredded 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 2 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken or turkey broth 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, optional 2 cups herb stuffing mix, coarsely chopped Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 3-qt. rectangular baking dish well with dairy-free butter substitute. For cashew cream, in a blender combine drained cashews, 1 1/2 cups fresh water, and a pinch of salt. Blend on high speed until completely smooth, 1 minute. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, sear mushrooms in a dry pan over medium-high until well browned on one side, 3 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. of the butter substitute and stir. Add thyme, onions, and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in wine; cook until liquid is almost evaporated, 4 minutes. Stir in leftover greens; cook, stirring constantly, until any free liquid evaporates. In a large bowl stir together shredded turkey, mushroom mixture, and cooked pasta. In a large saucepan heat 3 Tbsp. butter substitute over medium until foamy. Whisk in flour; cook, whisking occasionally, 3 minutes. Gradually whisk in broth and soy sauce until combined and smooth. Increase heat to medium-high; cook, whisking often, until mixture begins to bubble, 4 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, and the cashew cream; simmer, whisking often, until thickened, 4 minutes. Stir in nutritional yeast (if using). Add cashew mixture to pasta mixture; stir until well combined. Spoon mixture prepared baking dish. Melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter substitute; add stuffing mix and toss to coat. Sprinkle over mixture in dish. Bake, uncovered, until browned and bubbly, 30 minutes. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
