Posted By GKC On February 13, 2011 @ 1:56 am In Recipes of the Week,Weekly Recipes | No Comments


A variation on the traditional.
9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained and rinsed with cold water to prevent sticking
1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup water
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained
1 (14-1/2 ounce) can whole tomatoes
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
2 eggs
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or pizza cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté onion and garlic until soft. Stir in water, cilantro, beans, tomatoes, and tomato paste. Simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes, breaking up tomatoes as they soften. Remove from heat and mix with ricotta cheese and eggs. Place a thin layer of sauce along the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan. Top with 1/3 of the noodles, the sauce, then 1/3 of the cheese. Next should be another layer of noodles and sauce. Lastly, place remaining 1/3 noodles and remaining 2/3 cheese. Bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes.
