This was really good! I used 1% ricotta cheese instead of tofu. To cut down on the fat, I threw the zucchini pulp, tomatoes and onions in the mixture raw. I also added drained, cooked spinach. Thank you, Mirj!

I paired this with a seafood (tilapia) dish and it was superb. I did add a bit of garlic for my taste and didn't have moz, so I used a bit of parm cheese. Fantastic!
