Don't be afraid of tofu if you haven't tried it or haven't liked it in the past. I was not a big fan of it until I finally learned the trick to cooking it correctly - pressing the water out and then searing it until it's crispy on the outside. The best thing about this dish, howeverm besides the fact that it's quick and good weeknight meal, are the flavors - and you could certainly substitute shrimp for the tofu and snap peas or snow peas for the broccolini. I used broccolini here, sliced in half lengthwise, instead of regular broccoli, to mimic the noodles. Both broccoli and broccolini are in season in the spring and at the peak of their flavor.
