Pasta with Spinach and Tofu Sauce
This is an easy and healthy recipe that is good !! I modified it to my
taste and hope you will like it.
Use a character mold pan to make this in.
12 ounces mori-nu lite tofu, firm, drained
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup bottled salsa
1/4 teas cumin
1/2 teas oregano / basil
l/4 teas cinnamon
1/4 teas salt or to taste
1 pound angel hair pasta
-In a food processor, puree tofu, garlic, onion, spinach, cheese, salsa
and spices and salt to a smooth paste.
-In a large pot, bring salted water to boil.
Add the pasta and cook until al-dente.
-Drain the pasta. Add pasta while it is hot to the tofu paste
and mix well until all pasta is coated with the tofu paste.
-lightly spray a cake pan, a character shaped one is fun, with Pam and
dust lightly with fat free parmesan cheese ( 2 Tablespoons )
-Stuff the cake pan with the pasta. Press the pasta very firmly
in the pan.
-Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes.
If using a character mold, use mushrooms as buttons, red pepper strips as
a smile, julienne carrots / zucchini/ summer squash for manes or hair ~
have fun and use imagination !!
