1/2 lb. lasagna noodles

2 10-oz. packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1 lb. soft tofu

4 cups tomato sauce

Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Squeeze the spinach as dry as possible and set aside.

Place the tofu, sugar, soy milk, garlic powder, lemon juice, basil, and salt in the food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the spinach.

Cover the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce, then a layer of noodles (use about one-third of the noodles). Follow with half of the tofu filling. Continue in the same order, using half of the remaining tomato sauce and noodles and all of the remaining tofu filling. End with the remaining noodles, covered by the remaining tomato sauce.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
