I absolutely love this dish, but I prepare it differently now, having experimented a few times. To texturize/firm the tofu, I cut into 1/4" slices, press the water out, freeze overnight and defrost prior to preparing the recipe. I use Panko crumbs for a crispier coating. I salt/pepper the tofu, press it into flour, dip it into egg whisked in a shallow dish (make sure excess egg falls off), then press it into panko. I spray both sides with an olive oil spray, then broil on each side until golden brown. I then spoon canned marinara and sprinkle mozzarella over top, and again finish off in the broiler until mozzarella is bubbly and golden. So much healthier and, in my opinion, easier -- and just as tasty as the pan-fried version. :)
