Breaded tofu a la parmigiana. You'll just about swear this is eggplant or veal! One of my husband's favorites, and he doesn't even suspect! Serve with a simple crisp green salad, angel hair pasta and garlic bread.

  • 1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
