This is so delicious! It is so quick, fast and healthy!
I had a bunch of leftover spinach that needed to be used. This was the perfect recipe. I don't like fried tofu thought- so I used the spinach and onion paste as a marinade for the tofu. I made the sauce, then covered cubed tofu with it and let it sit in the fridge for about an hour. And the pasta - I poured tomato pasta sauce on it and mashed up the tofu with spinach mix. It tasted just like LASAGNA !!
Fast meal, healthy and deeeelicious! Thanks

I made this for lunch today. It is very tasty and makes an excellent change from tomato based pasta sauces. Also a great way to get your greens. The only changes I made were to use very little oil for frying, add some extra garlic, and some chopped parsley. I puréed a clove of garlic and 1 tbsp chopped parsley with the spinach and also added more chopped parsley later. It amazes me that I never thought of using spinach for a pasta sauce. Thank you very for the recipe.

This is a nice recipe. However, I'd put in the tofu with the garlic, so the onions don't get too mushy. I'd also use more tofu, and add the cheese.

This was super easy to make and, more importantly, REALLY GOOD! It went together much more quickly than the recipe indicates, which is always a plus. I used penne pasta,olive oil, crushed red peppers, and added a little lemon juice at the end (cuz I wanted it, not cuz it needed it!) The only thing is that the given portion size is pretty small. It was just for me, so I scaled it back to 1 serving. When I saw what an ounce of pasta looks like I made it 2 servings, which seemed like a good main-dish size. Thanks for the great recipe. I'll definitely make it again!

A fantastic pasta and tofu dish. It is very easy and fast to make and the taste is great. The spinach goes well together with the slight nutty flavours of the tofu. And onions, garlic and red pepper powder add some spicy notes. To fry the tofu is great, it brings out the flavours so well. If you belong to those, who don't like tofu, try this recipe, you will (at least) like it. Thanks directions for a great addition to my pasta cookbook.
