Grind tofu in a food processor or with a fork. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add onion, celery, carrots. Cook over medium-high heat until vegetables begin to soften, about 15 minutes. Add oil, if needed.
Add tofu, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, Italian seasoning , crushed red peppers, black pepper, tomatoes and tomato paste.
