      We all loved it. I didn't even tell my non-veg husband and kids that it was made with tofu because they would have been suspicious. The taste is like a creamy pink sauce but lighter. I used 1 lb. of silken lite tofu and added a bit more vinegar that called for. Served it over ziti with a nice big salad. Thanks Prose. This is sure to become a staple!!

      Maybe not outstanding, IMO, but definitely quite tasty and satisfying. Good way to work a little more protein into your pasta! And my little brother liked it, which is always a plus. Thanks!

      Surprisingly good! I tried it because it was so easy and nutritious, but was surprised at how tasty it was. Used low-fat tofu and a Classico marinara in the jar. My immersion blender worked perfectly for blending the tofu mixture. I used the vodka, and penne instead of spaghetti = Penne with Vodka Sauce. Thank you for sharing, Prose!
