Tofu Manicotti Recipe

Tofu Manicotti Recipe

To create a light main course, I borrowed bits from different recipes, including my mom's lasagna. No one suspects that the creamy filling is made with tofu. It's easy to prepare, and my toddlers love it. —Carolyn Diana of Scottsdale, Arizona

"This is a great recipe! I had never tried tofu before, but I will definitely have it again. I would add a little garlic and basil to the cheese mixture, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing! It was great!"
