Day 12: Tofu Stuffed Shells

As I posted on my Facebook page, this was the last day of my Pinterest recipe challenge! Forever adapting to military life and the last minute changes, my husband is going out into the field for a few days which means a break from cooking for me!

So here it is, last day of the challenge. Yes, it’s tofu again 🙂 But you can obviously find a recipe for regular stuffed shells if this gets your taste buds going! 
I personally didn’t enjoy this dish as much as the other tofu recipes I’ve made (hubby scarfed it). I thought it was a little bland and had too much oregano. Maybe I should have added more cheese or something to make it more flavorful…there’s always next time!
Ingredients (I added garlic powder and didn’t have shredded cheese so used this instead)
Add all ingredients in bowl
I smashed it all together with a fork since I don’t have a food processor 

Add sauce to cover bottom of dish

Stuff shells with mixture

Line shells in pan

Cover with sauce on top (I was running low!)

I decided to add some cheese on top 



  • 6 ounces jumbo pasta shells
  • 14 ounces firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 ounces marinara sauce


  • Cook shells in boiling, salted water; drain and rinse. Pulse tofu in food processor with oregano and lemon juice; season to taste; fill shells. Spread half marinara in 9-by-13-inch baking dish and place shells on top; add remaining sauce. Cover and bake at 350 degrees , 25 to 30 minutes.
