"This was a good meatless lasagna. I liked that there was tofu in it and my children couldn't tell. I did add more garlic and crushed red peppers in it to spice it up a little."

"Turned out pretty good. I'd spice up the tofu/cheese mixture a bit more. I also used whole wheat lasagna noodles. Others liked it also."
