This is an improvisation that seems to work well.  It even fooled my dad
who still swears he never eats tofu!

broccoli mixture

   1 package of light extra firm tofu or an extra can of beans
   6 halves dried tomatoes, rehydrated
   1 package spagetti sauce mix
   .5 tsp red pepper
   .5 tsp minced garlic

"Cheese" mixture:  Put tofu in food processor and process until smooth.
Remove and drain on paper towels for 5 min.  Drain the beans and put all
ingredients for cheese mixture in processor.  Process untill smooth and

Broccoli mixture:  Put all ingredients for mixture in a skillet and heat

Spinach mixture:  Put milk in a saucepan.  Add flour slowly while whisking.
Heat over medium heat until boiling while stirring constantly.  Continue to

Putting it all together:  Lightly spray a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray.

Layer half of the cheese mix, half of the borccoli mix and some marinara
sauce.  Top this with a little of the spinach mixture and three more

about 35 minutes.
