Stuffed Manicotti

Here's another tofu recipe. I didn't tell my family what was in it, and they all loved it.

8 dry manicotti noodles
16 oz soft tofu
1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried thyme
1 t freshly minced basil
2 t freshly minced garlic
1/3 C freshly minced Italian parsley
1/4 t white pepper
3 C spaghetti sauce
Fresh Italian parsley or basil for garnish

Preheat oven to 375 F. Cook pasta for 5 min in boiling water, rincse in cold water, and set aside, making sure that the manicotti are not stacked or overlapping.

In a large bowl mix the tofu, oregano, thyme, basil, garlic, parsley, and white pepper. Add salt to taste. Stuff the manicotti noodles with the filling and place into a shallow 8 x 8-inch greased baking dish. Pour the sauce over the manicotti and bake for 30 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling. Garnish with the fresh herbs and serve.
