Packed with vegetables, this savory meatless pie uses spaghetti as the crust. It’s a great option if you cooked too much spaghetti one night. The vegetables get sautéed first to add some color and another layer of flavor, and then the tomato sauce is added along with the crumbled tofu to create a flavorful filling. You can substitute whatever vegetables you like, such as summer squash and zucchini. If you’d like to brown the cheese even more after it bakes for 20 minutes, you can broil it for 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped fresh basil for a hit of freshness.
