  1. Heat olive oil dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, and stir to coat with oil. Crumble tofu into very small pieces over the onion. Stir and cook 10-15 minutes until the onion is very tender. A black crust will form on the bottom of the pan as the tofu cooks. This is a good thing! It will add flavor to the finished sauce.
  2. Stir in mushrooms, garlic, salt, Italian herbs, and red pepper flakes. Cook another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. stir in diced and crushed tomatoes. Bring to a low boil, stirring often. Cover pot not quite tightly to allow some steam to escape. (You want the liquid to burn off a bit to thicken up the sauce.) Reduce heat to low, and simmer for at least two hours, stirring occasionally. Adjust salt to taste, and serve over your favorite pasta.
