Nutty Tofu Noodles

Some days, you just need something quick and simple for dinner. I made this tofu dish from Rachael Ray on one of those days.

It was good – quick and filling, but nothing too special. I think it was partly because I used whole grain spaghetti, and the sauce didn’t quite make it… saucy enough. It also needed a bit of heat, so I ended up adding chili garlic sauce to it.

When I had it leftover for lunch, I added a bit of peanut oil, some low sodium soy sauce and Sriracha, and it was better than it was on day 1. Just something to note. It’s definitely a quick and easy, satisfying meal. Just don’t expect to be blown away.
