12 ounces dried whole-wheat egg noodles (or you choice of pasta shape)
Olive oil cooking spray, or olive oil
1 medium size yellow onion, sliced
12 ounces mushrooms (all one variety, or a mix ~ a mix of white and portobello is really good), sliced

Puree the tofu with the yogurt in a blender or food processor until smooth (can add a Tablespoon or two of the stock if mixture is too thick to blend.)

Add sliced onions and saute until translucent and beginning to caramelize. Add mushrooms and garlic; mist with a light coating of olive oil; saute until cooked, about 5 to 7 more minutes.

Add cooked noodles/pasta to mushroom sauce, stir gently to reheat noodles, adding a bit more broth if mixture is too thick.
