Instructions

  • Cook pasta as per package directions. Reserve ½ cup of cooking water - drain.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet, add shallot and garlic - cook for 2~3 minutes or until shallot is translucent.
  • Add peppers and cook till crisp tender. Stir in the tomatoes and baked tofu and cook till tomatoes are warmed through - but not mushy. Season with salt & pepper.
