Baked pasta dish for a hearty dinner on Meatless Monday

Many of us made New Year's resolutions to eat healthier, more nutritious food -- but at this time of the year, the most appealing foods are often the stick-to-your-ribs kind that provide fuel to power through the colder weather. But this baked pasta is the best of both worlds: nutritious and filling. Adapted from Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook, we added some oil and tweaked amounts for your cheesy (dairy-free!) baked-pasta pleasure.
