Really good. Me and my husband enjoyed it a lot. Spiced it up a little.

My son calls this one "Plate Lickin' Good!" P.S. He doesn't like Tofu at all.

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.

Delicious, however, I WOULD us Portabella mushrooms and be sure the marinera sauce is spicy for the zip.

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.

This wasn't a horrible recipe, but I wasn't too thrilled.
