Tofu is a great source of protein, 8 grams of protein per 3.5 ounces. If you want to add meat to this dish, simply add either 1/2 pound of Italian sausage or ground beef.

I have made this many times and keep finding new ways to fix now I love those Mini Sweet Prepacked there now selling. I add 2 of each of the small to a serving

It calls for Marinara sauce but you can use your favor spaghetti sauce or that jar stuff.
