Note from the recipe author -- A few people mentioned that it was missing something. If you noticed in the description, I said that it is a basic recipe, meaning that it is a starting point. Add your favorite spices and vegetables.

This was really good! Like someone else, said, it's really the sauce you use that makes or breaks it. I made my own tomato sauce. I also quadrupled the recipe, and used penne instead of shells. I didn't use any of the cheese, but the tofu sure fooled everyone as ricotta! Also, I sauteed zucchini slices and a portabello mushroom. I decided to layer it like lasagna, with sauce on the bottom, a layer of noodles, some mushroom and zucchini chunks, then the tofu (used more), and then started over with the sauce. I ended it with sauce on top and sprinkled chopped black olives all over the top. Yum, yum, and quite healthy!!! Next time I'll try it with lasagna noodles!

This was SO GOOD! I have been been searching for ways to make healthful vegetarian dishes, and this one was amazing! I especially liked how there was tofu incorporated into the sauce, and how there wasn't much cheese at all. This dish was also very filling on not a whole lot of calories, which was very nice. I will definately be making his again. Thank You!
