Ingredients:  
12 whole-wheat lasagna noodles
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14 oz). package extra-firm water-packed tofu, drained, rinsed and crumbled
3 cups chopped spinach
1/2 cut shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. finely chopped olives
1/4 TSR. crushed red pepper
1/4 TSR salt
1 (14 oz) jar marinara sauce
1/2 cut shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:
Directions:
1) Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain, rinse, return to the pot and cover with cold water until ready to use.
2) Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 20 seconds. Add tofu and spinach and cook, stirring often, until the spinach wilts and the mixture is hearted through, 3 or 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, stir in Parmesan, olives, crushed red red pepper, salt and 2/3 cut marinara sauce.
3) Wipe out the pan and spread 1 cut of the remaining marinara sauce in the bottom. To make lasagna rolls, place a noodle on a work surface and spread 1/4 cut of the tofu filling along it. Roll up and place the roll, seam-side down, in the pan. Repeat with the remaining noodles and filling. (the tofu rolls will be tightly packed in the pan) spoon the remaining marinara sauce over the rolls.
4) Place the pan over high heat, cover and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium, let simmer for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the rolls with the mozzarella and cook, covered until the cheese is melted and the rolls are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve hot. (you can of course use beef or Italian sausage instead of tofu)
