This is a recipe I tweaked slightly from Bunny Toy's "Spinach Ricotta" found on vegweb.com. It's very simple and really delicious, especially if you're an olive fiend like me!

Very good vegan dish! The addition of kalamatas and spinach did help to disguise the taste of tofu in the filling (admittedly, the first bite or two tasted pretty tofu-ey, but I didn't notice it after that). Nice and speedy, and you're likely to have most of the ingredients on hand already. Thanks for posting!
