  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon (Plus More For Baking Dish)
  Sliced mushrooms 8 Ounce (2 Cup)
  Low carb garlic tomato sauce 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Red pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Directions

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a 9- by 13-inch baking dish.
2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook for 6 minutes; add zucchini and cook until noodles are al dente and zucchini is soft, about 4 minutes longer. Drain. Rinse under cold water and set aside.
3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat.
4. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process tofu, spinach, egg, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, and 14 teaspoon salt.
5. Arrange one-third of noodles and zucchini in an even layer in baking dish. Top with half of the tofu mixture, spreading in an even layer. Add one-third of mozzarella and one-third of tomato sauce. Arrange another one-third noodles and zucchini in a single layer over sauce. Spread with remaining tofu mixture and another one-third each of sauce and mozzarella. Finish with remaining noodles and zucchini, sauce, and mozzarella. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
6. Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting and serving.
