SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this and it was fantastic! I used tomato puree instead of a tomato sauce to be a bit healthier and it was still really good. I also used a soy american cheese melted on top since I couldn't find a cheddar in my local supermarket and that was also very good, even though I think a cheddar would've been better. Next time I make this I'll definitely try to find a cheddar cheese first. Fantastic recipe and very quick and easy too!!

In.Cre.Di.Ble!!!!!! I made this for a really special occasion and what a hit. My hubby was meeting his cousin for the first time... he doesn't know ANY of his blood relatives at all. I needed something fast but amazing and this did the trick BIG TIME!!! She is a major meat and potato girl but couldn't get enough of this dish. I did saute a load of garlic with the onion ahead and used fresh spinach instead of frozen. I served it with a pile of Israeli Couscous ( much larger than common couscous) and topped it off with vegan parm.

This is pretty tasty!  Quick and easy to make as well.  It lends itself to a lot of modifications and is really healthy.  Although my husband wasn't a huge fan, I'll make it again.

Sadly, this recipe did nothing for me.  It was bland, watery, and had no pizazz.  Even after squeezing all of the moisture from the spinach and draining the tofu as dry as possible, there was still a big ol' puddle of liquid in the dish after baking this.  Also, I used a flavorful pasta sauce but man, this dish just completely lacked flavor (even after adding fresh garlic and onion).  It tasted like plain spinach! I wish I had a good experience like all of the other reviewers but I just can't recommend this one.  Bummer.

this is a great recipe!  I served it with some Quinoa, and it was great.  However, I am not a big fan of semi-cooked onions, so I think I will pre-cook them a little next time.  I also added garlic.  Yummy!  ;D

This was so great!  Fast, easy and healthy!  It tastes exactly like lasagna w/o all the work.  I sauted the onion first then added the spinach, garlic, tofu, muchrooms and sauce.  Then I added some quinoa to it and put it in a cassarole dish and baked it for 20min.  This would be a great one dish meal if you mix rice or pasta to it before baking.

This was great! I ended up putting WAY too much cheese on this, but that was my fault, not the recipe's. (That's what happens when I try to take cooking liberties. I mess something up! But that's how you learn, right?) My boy and I dug out all of the spinachy goodness under the layer of cheese and loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!

Just made this for the first time tonight, and boy was it tasty!

I added in elbow macaroni to give it a bit more substance, and opted for wood-smoked tofu to add a nice flavour. Mmmmm!

I used fresh, chopped chard that I cooked first; sauted the onion and garlic with a few mushrooms, and used thawed, frozen tofu. Very quick to throw together, very tasty!! Applause!
