Vegan Tofu Ricotta Recipe

Use this tofu ricotta as a filler for lovely lasagnas (such as our own Vegetarian Lasagna with Vegan Options), tempting tortellini, and ridiculously-tasty ravioli.  The flavors blend together wonderfully in order to ensure that your vegan dishes are just as delicious (if not more so!) than their non-vegan counterparts.

Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups.
