"Pureed tofu is the secret of this delicious, creamy, tomato sauce. Rotelle works well with this recipe, but you can substitute any other pasta."

Wow, this was delicious! my first time using tofu, and it turned out wonderful. Like other reviewers, I just added diced tomatoes instead of the jar of peppers. Then added some veggies i had on hand, some extra spices (paprika, pepper, and red pepper flakes) and it was ready...very flavourful. It also froze and thawed well. Thanks!
I love the idea, but the 2 cups of broth is WAY!! too much. Use 1/4 c., maybe?
This was good, though more of a pepper sauce than a tomato sauce. Might be better if you substituted some crushed tomatoes for the peppers.
I was very pleased for my first try cooking with tofu. Easy recipe and delicious. My very picky 7 year old niece ate 3 bowls! Instead of asparagus and mushrooms, I used fresh spinach and zucchini.
This was my first recipe using tofu. I really liked the texture it gave the sauce. The only thing different I did was to add about 1/2 cup grated fresh parmesan to the sauce instead of putting on top. Will definately make again.
I really, really liked this recipe. The flavors are great! I was worried my husband would not like the roasted red pepper flavor, but he liked it as well.
I agree with leaving out the peppers and substituting tomatoes. Liked the cream sauce idea. I also cooked the mushrooms and onions in 1 cup veggie broth (instead of oil) until most of the liquid was gone. They added a great flavor. Will make again without the peppers. The peppers I had gave it more of a vinegar flavor.
This was very creamy and quite good. I added cayenne pepper instead of the chili paste. I agree with the reviewer that said something is missing. I increased the salt, tomato paste, italian seasoning but was still not able to fix it.
