 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   12      ounces        manicotti noodles
   16      ounces        tofu -- soft
      1/2  teaspoon      dried oregano
      1/2  teaspoon      dried thyme
    1      teaspoon      fresh basil -- minced
    2      teaspoons     garlic -- minced
      1/2  cup           Italian parsley -- minced
      1/4  teaspoon      white pepper
                         salt
    3      cups          marinara sauce
 
 Preheat the oven to 375 degreesF.  Cook the pasta for 5 minutes in boiling water,
rinse in cold water, and set aside, making sure that the manicotti are not
stacked or overlapping.
 
 In a large bowl mix the tofu, oregano, thyme, basil, garlic, parsley, and white
pepper.  Add salt to taste.  Suff the manicotti noodles with the filling and
place into a shallow 8 X 8 nonstick baking dish.  Pour the Marinara Sauce over
the manicotti and bake for 30 minues, or until the sauce is bubbling.  Garnish
with fresh herbs and serve.
