Tofu Spinach Stuffed Shells
From [email protected]

Mori-Nu makes a product that used to be named Tofu Helper but is now called Tofu Hero. It is a vegan packaged herb mix that is carried by many health food stores. The Italian Herb Medley style turns tofu into a great stuffing for pasta shells, manicotti and lasagna.

1 package Mori-Nu extra firm tofu
1 package Mori-Nu Tofu Hero, Italian Herb Medley style
1 and 1/2 cup frozen cup leaf spinach
2 large cloves fresh garlic
Jumbo Shell pasta
Home made or canned spaghetti sauce
Soy cheese, mozzarella style

Mince the garlic cloves and place in a large skillet with few tablespoons of water. Saute for a couple of minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and the Tofu Hero to the skillet. Add 1 box Mori-Nu tofu and mash with a fork into tiny crumbles. Add the frozen spinach and cook uncovered for about ten to twelve minutes until most of the water is gone.

Cook jumbo shell pasta according to directions on the box. Drain pasta and then fill with the tofu-spinach mixture. Oil a large baking dish and spread a layer of spaghetti sauce along the bottom. Place filled shells in the dish and add some more spaghetti sauce to almost cover the shells. Top with grated mozzarella soy cheese. Bake covered at 325 for forty minutes.
