    chiclet's Note:

    I found this recipe years ago, I don't remember where. It is a lovely dish for entertaining your vegetarian friends, and the leftovers keep well if you're flying solo. The roasted tofu is very versatile and also works well in salads, stir-fries, and many other dishes. Cook time is estimated and reflects the minimum marinating and cooling times for the tofu. This dish is vegan if you omit the parmesan cheese.

      This was great. My family loved it. I upped the olive oil, garlic and red pepper flake (basically like making spaghetti garlic & oil) and didn't 'stem' the spinach. This is a keeper.

      Did not enjoy this at all. Too much pasta...not enough flavour. Would not make again.
