Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c. Cook the pasta shells according to the instructions on the pack. Make the tomato sauce if using home-made.
  2. Finely chop the spinach (use a food processor if you have one) and fry gently with the nutmeg until softened. Add salt and pepper to taste. Crumble the tofu into small pieces in a bowl and mix in the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add to the spinach and fry for a couple of minutes.
  3. Lightly coat the base of an oven-proof dish with olive oil. Place some of the mixture inside each pasta shell and place in a single layer in the dish. Spoon the tomato sauce over the shells, place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Found it a bit bland. The nutmeg was probably too strong a flavour. - 07 Apr 2014
