A tangy, flavorful pasta dish and one of my personal favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate tofu in the juice of the lemons while preparing the rest of the sauce.
  2. Add some zest to the juice as well.
  3. Be sure that all of the tofu absorbs some lemon juice.
  4. Combine tomatoes, oil, parsley, green onion, and basil; cook 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the tofu and about half of the lemon juice to the tomatoes and onion with pepper; cook 5-7 minutes.
  6. Serve over pasta.

I liked this a lot. I served it with the Spaghetti Squash Saute from this site instead of pasta, and it was a great combination.

This was really good! I changed the amounts a bit: I used a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, 1 lb of tofu, 3 green onions (and thought it could use more) and a 375g package of spaghetti (very slightly more than 3/4 lb). The amount of tomatoes worked well so I suspect that 14.5 oz of tomatoes wouldn't give enough sauce, at least not for my tastes. Also threw in some baby spinach. Oh yeah, I also put ALL the lemon juice into the sauce... which is why my boyfriend didn't like it nearly as much as I did, lol! (I love lemon.) I was thinking 4 or 5 stars but BF said 3, so I settled on 4. Great recipe that I'll be making again!

I'm not a vegetarian but thought this meal was quick, easy to prepare and delicious.
