Now you can probably start switching to more summery dishes!

This lovely pasta started from a lucky shopping spree. I had always associated tofu with Asian dishes, and I certainly wouldn't have purposefully bought tofu flavored with tomato and basil. Now, however, I had to come up with something good. And it turned out really well! The pasta tastes good even for picky eaters in the family.

Caprese pasta usually contains mozzarella, but in this recipe, tofu and cream do the job.

Making the sauce

You should first saute the onions, i.e. fry them on a low heat until they become soft and translucent. After that, you can add almost all the remaining ingredients.

The tofu should remain soft and you don't need to drain it much before use. Of course, you should squeeze out most of the liquids.

Add the tofu to the sauce only at the very end.
