Conchiglie Pasta in Tomato Sauce

Thank you for clicking the link to my blog!

Honestly, this was solely experimental (as usual). I actually wanted to try out Tofu for the first time and decided to toss it in my pasta. I also had the ‘longest’ day at University, so I needed something super quick, tasty and healthy.

FYI – I still can’t tell if I like Tofu or not yet, so I’m going to play with it a bit more in the future.

So here we are, my recipe for Conchiglie Pasta in Tomato Sauce
