Homemade Dairy-Free "Spaghettios"

I found a great circle pasta at Trader Joe's and knew it had to become a healthier and dairy-free version of Spaghettios. I found this recipe online and modified it to become dairy-free.

3 T Earth's Balance
3 T flour
1 3/4 cup soymilk
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 6oz can tomato paste
big shakes of dried oregano, dried basil and dried parsley

Melt butter, add flour and cook for 1 minute while whisking. Add soymilk and herbs and cook until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in tomato sauce and tomato paste and cook until heated through. Serve over cooked circle (or other) pasta.

I thought this was an excellent mock Spaghettios - well actually much better than the original canned stuff. My kids liked it - ate big bowls served over frozen spinach to cool their portions off and get some more greens in them.
