Spinach & Tomato Lasagna

1 Tbsp. or so dried basil & italian herbs (eyeball it)
1 (15-ounce) carton fat-free ricotta cheese
1 (12.3-ounce) package reduced-fat firm tofu, drained

Remaining ingredients:
2 Jars Spaghetti Sauce (we like Bertolli, Newman's own and Barilla)
Cooking spray
12 Barilla no-boil lasagna noodles
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp provolone cheese
1 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Romano or Parmesan cheese
2 packages frozen chopped spinach


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To prepare filling, combine basil, ricotta, and tofu in a bowl; mash ricotta mixture with a potato masher.

Spread 2 cups sauce in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 3 noodles over sauce; top with 1 cup filling, 1 cup provolone cheese, 1/3 cup Romano, all of the spinach and 1-1/2 cups sauce. Repeat layers (excluding the spinach which you already used up), ending with noodles. Spread remaining sauce over noodles (about 1 1/2 cups). Sprinkle with remaining provolone cheese (if you have any left) and remaining 1/3 cup Romano. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

YIELD: 8 servings

This meal makes great leftovers (something DH and i like a lot). It feeds us for about 4 days :).

Tofu is great in anything that calls for creaminess. It doesn't have much flavor on its own and absorbs the flavor of whatever its with - which makes it perfect for both sweet and savory dishes. I have seen it used in desserts like cream pies before.
