When my daughter became a vegetarian, 20 years ago, I found this recipe and it's been a favorite ever since. Everyone loves the flavor and texture and it's loaded with healthy protein.

Very good, and it makes a lot so it is very economic. I am going to make this again with more italian seasoning and I also cheated and used a large jar of premade sauce (but I still sauted the onion and garlic and added that to the premade sauce) and didn't read that I was supposed to use a half package of ziti. I didn't have any eggs on hand so I just added a little oil to the tofu ricotta mixture. I used part-skim mozzarella cheese to top this casserole instead of the swiss. I didn't add the nutmeg to this dish, I don't like nutmeg in anything savory, just sweets. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, the things you can do with tofu!!! The tofu looked just like ricotta chesse. I used a large jar of spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato sauce. I added all the seasoning to the sauce and it worked out great. I had too many noodles so mine was a little on the dry side-- but that was my mistake.

What a great idea for tofu! I never would have thought of pureeing it and using it instead of a ricotta mixture. Still would like to add a bit more flavor, so I will play around a little but plan on trying this with stuffed shells next time. The sauce was simple and easy. I did add just a splash of balsamic vinegar because I love it. I also was running late getting dinner on the table, so I didn't layer it and it was fine. I think this made at least 6-8 servings which is great because we love leftovers. This went over well with everyone. DD has never liked any tofu dishes I have made, but she tonight she had seconds! Thanks for posting.

For this recipe the tofu and spinach MUST be thourghly squeeze dried or it will be "soupy". I added extra garlic also put parmesan cheese between layers for extra flavor. This is "good" but really needs more seasoning. i.e., Italian spices would be good in this recipe. I might make this again, but would add more seasonings for flavor. If calories are not a factor for you, mozzarella cheese would also be good between layers. Personally I liked the parmesan and topped with mozzarella.

I've made this twice now, and I really enjoy the fact that this dish is both healthy and tasty. The spinach and tofu are a vegetarian's dream, but my meat-loving fiance even liked it, especially when I topped it with some soy mozzarella cheese. The next time I make it, I plan on added some garlic- it could use a lot of that to make up for the tastelessness of tofu.
