    1                    (8-ounce) package
                         Medium-size egg noodles,
                         Uncooked
      1/2   c            Chopped onion
      1/4   c            Chopped green pepper
      1/4   c            Butter or margarine, melted
    3       tb           All-purpose flour
    3       c            Milk
      1/4   c            Grated Parmesan cheese
    1       tb           Poppy seeds
    1       t            Salt
      1/8   ts           Red pepper
    3       c            Diced cooked tofu
    1                    (4-ounce) jar diced
                         Pimiento, drained
    2       tb           Grated Parmesan cheese
 
   Cook noodles according to package directions.  Drain
   well, and set aside. Sauti onion and green pepper in
   butter in a Dutch oven until tender; add flour,
   stirring until smooth.  Cook 1 minute, stirring
   constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat,
   stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.  Stir
   in noodles, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, poppy seeds,
   salt, red pepper, and tofu; add pimiento, and stir
   gently. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 12- x 8-
   x 2-inch baking dish. Cover and chill 8 hours.  To
   bake, remove from refrigerator, and let stand at room
   temperature 30 min.  Bake, covered, at 350 for 45 min.
   Uncover, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese.
   Bake, uncovered, an additional 10 min. or until
   thoroughly heated.
   
   1. I use one pound of tofu cut into 1 inch squares
   instead of turkey.  (I am a vegitarian.)
   
   2. It does not have to refrigerate, but the tastes do
   mingle better if it does.
   
   3. I usually sprinkle more than 2 tablespoons of
   cheese on top.
