Tofu Pot Pie Pasta

Tofu Pot Pie Pasta. <— Say that five times fast!


Based on the traditional Chicken Pot Pie, this has some big variations:

  • It’s tofu not chicken. {Well, yup.}

  • It’s over pasta and not in a pie. {Yes, visibly checking that off.}

  • It’s over spaghetti squash, not ‘real’ pasta. {Whoa, Rachel, going a little over-board, are we?}

  • It’s awesome delicious just like Chicken Pot Pie. {Seriously.}

So here’s the thing. A cold winters night calls for something warm and lovely. So I had a little fun in the kitchen with Tofu.


It’s crazy. It takes just like chicken pot pie minus the chicken. And crust. And real spaghetti.


Ok, ok. So it doesn’t really resemble it at all. But it sure does taste like it!!
