✔️Variations
White beans - can be replaced with butter beans or chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
Spinach leaves can be added in raw. Baby spinach can be added in as-is.
Mushrooms chop up into small pieces and add. If you are not replacing any other vegetable, you may need to slightly adjust the wet ingredients to suit.
💭Pro Tips
Chopping vegetables (zucchini and eggplant) into small chunks will help spread them out evenly throughout this no boil vegan pasta bake.
Covering all contents with sauce ensures that everything is baked evenly. 
Putting a lid on it helps moisture retention in the pasta bake, do not open the lid whilst baking. 
Flatten out the top layer also ensures everything is baked evenly, any sticking out bits, namely pasta, will be crunchy.
