Recipe Notes

I used daiya vegan cheese for this recipe, but any vegan mozzarella cheese will work.

The rice cakes tend to soak up most of the sauce when this dish is left in the fridge overnight.  I don't typically leave leftovers when making this.  If you have leftovers, try adding a little water or vegetable broth to it when reheating.
