Heat oil in large frying pan over medium-high heat; add onions and garlic, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes, until soft. Add turkey, stirring frequently, for 6 to 8 minutes, until cooked through. (If using meatless crumbles, these are precooked and just need to be warmed.) Stir in pasta sauce. Remove from heat.

Spread 3/4 cup pasta sauce mixture over bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with noodles. Spread half of the silken tofu, well drained and crumbled, over noodles. Top with 1/3 cup cheese, 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce mixture and half of the zucchini, sliced thinly lengthwise (like a lasagna noodle shape). Top with layer of noodles. Spread remaining tofu crumbles over noodles. Top with 1/3 cup cheese, 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce mixture and remaining zucchini slices. Top with remaining?noodles, pasta sauce mixture and 1/3 cup cheese. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
