Mushroom manicotti

Tonight was an experiments of sorts. There is a recipe in the Whole Foods Market cookbook for vegan creamed spinach which we really like. So for dinner I made manicotti stuffed with garlic and herb tofu (Small Planet brand - it's awesome!), sauteed mushrooms and chopped hazelnuts - seasoned with some salt, pepper, nutmeg and nutritional yeast and then topped it with the creamed spinach. I added more soy milk to the spinach recipe so that it would be more sauce like. It really was quite good :-) I kept it covered with foil the whole time it baked so it wouldn't dry out - I baked it at 350 for - well, for however long it takes to drive one kid to her math tutor, drop off a prescription at Costco, pick up from the tutor, then get her sister from lacrosse practice! About an hour I reckon.

We also had some oven roasted zucchini and yellow squash tossed with fresh dill and slivered garlic, applesauce and a seeded baguette.
