Pasta Salad with Tofu | Recipe Treasure

As a vegetarian, tofu has always been a huge part of my diet as a substitute for meat products in order to get my daily dose of complete protein when I’m not eating lentils. Although many people believe that tofu is tasteless, they are unaware that taste can be added to it by marinating it with different spices. This tofu pasta salad recipe shows a good way to fuse Italian flavors in the traditionally flavorless Chinese tofu to create a pasta salad with a new twist.
