Red Pepper Tofu Ricotta Cheese Filling

Red pepper Tofu Ricotta

This stuff is C R A Z Y G O O D.…..I am planning on adding fresh steamed broccoli to this for my mini lasagna!!! I will post the entire recipe when it’s made! Perfect for stuffing pasta shells or manicotti, making mini lasagna roll ups or a full on plate of lasagna. The color of the peppers make this exceptionally beautiful and the cherry bomb pepper adds a hint of spice without overwhelming the palate.
