  1. 1Combine bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon basil, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
  2. 2Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices. One at a time, press tofu slices into egg whites, then crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides.
  3. 3Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook tofu slices until crisp on one side.
  4. 4Drizzle with a bit more olive oil, turn, and brown on the other side. Place slices on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  5. 5Combine tomato sauce, oregano, garlic, and remaining basil.
  6. 6Place a little sauce in the bottom of an 8 inch square baking pan and arrange tofu slices in the pan. Spoon remaining sauce over tofu.
  7. 7Top with shredded mozzarella and remaining Parmesan. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 minutes.
  1. 1I love this with a spinach salad tossed in a simple balsamic dressing with a few toasted pinenuts, sliced mushrooms and diced artichoke hearts
