About this recipe: A lot of vegetarian lasagne recipes are full of veg, which is great, but you miss out on the protein. Here, black beans take centre stage in a tasty lasagne that will win over vegetarians and carnivores alike!
I'm one of the few who did NOT find this recipe bland, however, I did make a few alterations - used cottage cheese instead of the ricotta. Added basil & oregano to the cheese. In addition to the shredded mozzarella I also used a little shredded cheddar & monterey jack. Would probably be good with added corn, too. My husband loved it, and my toddler ate a little bit of it. - 23 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Awesome vegetarian dish, and I'm a meat eater! I accidentally bought one can of black bean soup and one can of regular, and it still came out wonderfully. I also added some oregano, basil and garlic powder (I was out of minced garlic) to the cheese mixture, and the spices were subtle but tasty. I think if you add spices, this dish is great. - 22 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This lasagne is EXCELLENT. I live in a dorm and find that the leftovers are as good, if not better than the first meal! I add cumin and chili powder to the sauce as well as extra onion and green pepper to give it a southwestern flair. I highly recommend this as a great alternative to standard lasagne! - 29 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
