I use the following "ricotta cheese" in stuffed shells, lasagna and
when I am super lazy baked with pasta and homemade tomato sauce.
2 packages low fat tofu I use Mori nu)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley (you could sub basil)
1 Head roasted garlic (you could omit this if you don't like it, but it helps

salt (if you like)

Step 2) Mash ingredients together with a fork

give it more of an creative spin. By adding these fatfree ingredients, you
can increase the nutritional value as you wish and lower the percentage
fat (if that is something you are concerned with).
Bake at 375 40-60 minutes.
The key to doing this is having or making good quality ff sauce. It takes a
relatively short amount of time to make sauce and it makes a huge
