This is a great alternative for those forgoing animal-based products or looking to cut-back on added fats. Tofu, from soybeans, provides an excellent amount of high quality protein, phytochemicals, and fiber. Great recipe for diets requiring lower fat content or ingredients that are easy to chew/swallow. For those sensitive to tomato sauce, you can use olive oil to coat dish and make lasagna roll-ups with tofu mixture and sautéed vegetables like zucchini, squash, carrot, and mushrooms.
