      Do you have a recipe for oil free & sugar free pasta sauce? Or any favorite brands that I can get at the store? Thanks!

        365 brand (Whole Foods) Fat Free Pasta Sauce is sugar free, oil and MSG free.

      I am enjoying this recipe right now for a early lunch! I had to try some because my kitchen smelled so good! It tastes as good as it smells:)

      I loved it!!! Made my own pasta sauce as I can’t find any without sugar and oil where I live and it was GREAT! Thanks!!!

      Another awesome recipe! Julie, are you going to write a cookbook? I would definitely buy it. 🙂

      This was so good, and the leftovers for lunch today were even better! I used Tinkyada brown rice pasta and made my own sauce.

      True story….this is delicious! Easy recipe to follow and I can see this being a go to in my weekly rotation. A cook book would be a great idea:)

      What I love about your recipes is that not only are they delicious, but very quick and easy. My daughter and I both loved it! I will definitely make this often.

      Would you recommend marinating the tofu and then pressing it out again for more flavor?.. if so what type of marinade would you use?

      This is easy and delicious! I made my own sauce and used rotini pasta. Leftovers are even better! 5 stars!

      i just made a double batch for a vegan thanksliving potluck for tomorrow. it smells great in here. i added mushrooms and made my own sauce.

      Made this yesterday (I’ve made 8 of Julie’s recipes in the last 2 days!), it makes your house smell soooooooo good, could hardly wait for it to get done cooking but it is well worth the wait.
      I can’t wait to make it again so I can add some mushrooms like Veganinblack suggested! That might be sooner than expected because my niece was eating it for breakfast this morning. I’m really enjoying having this kind of delicious food in the house for others to eat without any guilt or other unnecessary ingredients! 🙂
      Also can’t wait for my husband and niece to start seeing their weight drop while eating food that is so delicious and filling.

      Wondering about a pasta sauce – I live in PODUNK, no WF within a 6 hour drive.

        Feel free to use canned or jarred tomatoes or puree, this is what I do. Make your own sauce by browning some finely diced onions, diced garlic add pureed tomatoes or tomatoes in puree. You can also add chopped fresh parsley, basil or oregano. There is nothing special about what is in the 365 whole foods sauce. The reason I recommend it is because of what is NOT it it!

      I am allergic to spinach. Can I substitute kale?

      Fantastic! We had it for dinner tonight. It will easily make dinner for 3 nights for me and my husband along with a side salad.

      Hi! Would this recipe be ok to halve? I’m sure it would freeze well, but I need to get more containers for that 🙂 Thanks!

      I love this recipe. So easy to make and it tastes just like the ziti I used to eat in my SAD days. I need to make it again soon but there are SO many recipes to try!

      This is so so so good! I made the quick red pasta sauce recipe in the pressure cooker. The tofu is yummy and just like pieces of cheese. Perfection!

      Tell me WHY I haven’t made this before?? So good and easy! Served for my birthday dinner tonight and everyone liked it, especially my 9 month old granddaughter 🙂 my son in law ate it, said it was good but he has soy “issues” so wouldn’t have seconds. Hubby liked it alot and it’s a good thing because I doubled the recipe. Can this be frozen before baking??
