Number of Servings: 6


    16 ounces fresh spinach, washed and chopped
    1 package low fat firm tofu
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1/8 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    10 ounces fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
    6 ounces fresh sliced shiitake mushrooms
    1/2 cup diced red onion


In food processor or blender, combine spinach, 1/2 package tofu, lemon juice, garlic, broth, cheese, pepper, and Italian seasoning, process until smooth. Set aside.

Spray a large non-stick saute pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook onions and mushrooms and remaining tofu (cut into chunks) until tender. Reduce heat to low, add pesto mixture and heat until hot.

Toss your choice of pasta with sauce. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired. NOTE: If sauce seems too thick, thin to desired consistency with pasta cooking water or broth.
