Stuffed Manicotti Shells

This is a favorite cheese fare week recipe in our house.
1 lb firm tofu, broken up
1/2 lb mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c fresh parsley, chopped
1 t onion powder
1/2 t garlic salt, or one clove garlic minced
2-3 leaves fresh basil, finely chopped
1 jar prepared spaghetti sauce
1/2 c parmesan cheese, shredded
1 box pasta shells
Cook pasta until soft. Combine all other ingredients except spaghetti sauce and parmesan. Stuff shells with cheese mixture. Pour half the jar of sauce into a baking dish, then place stuffed shells into sauce. Pour remaining sauce over shells and top with parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until sauce is bubbling. Serve with garlic bread covered in butter and a salad.

Yum! Now I'm wishing I hadn't already done all the shopping and meal planning for the week! We'll have to try this one after Pascha. I've been looking for a good stuffed shells recipe and I'm intrigued that this one uses tofu.
