Great recipe! I used it for stuffed manicotti. I did decrease the amount of garlic powder to 1/2 teaspoon though. On my bottle it said 1 clove of garlic = 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. So.....1 Tablespoon would be equal to 24 cloves of garlic if I did my math right, haha?

This is REMARKABLY similar to the real thing in texture and taste. I used extra firm tofu and just as a preference, I omitted oil.

We use 2-3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of powdered but follow the recipe otherwise. It's a delicious substitute for ricotta. We actually prefer it. Thanks!
