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

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.
