Recipe Ingredients for Mexican Lasagna

30 oz Beans
24 oz Salsa
28 oz Diced Tomatoes
8 oz Tomato Sauce
15 oz Fat Free Ricotta Cheese
15 oz Spinach
4 cup Reduced Fat Mild Cheddar Shredded Cheese
8 oz Lasagna Noodles

Recipe Directions for Mexican Lasagna

  1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes with their juices, the salsa, tomato sauce, and black beans. Mix well. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, spinach 1/2 cup of the blended cheeses, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

  2. Spread 1 1/2 cups of the tomato-bean mixture over the bottom of a 6 quart electric slow cooker. Add a single layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles, breaking them to fit as necessary. Spread one third of the ricotta mixture evenly over the pasta. Sprinkle 1 cup of the shredded cheese blend on top of the ricotta. Spoon one quarter of the remaining tomato-bean mixture on top. Repeat the layers two more times. Then add a final layer of noodles and the remaining tomato-bean mixture, spreading it evenly over all.

  3. Cover and cook on the low heat setting for 41/2 to 5 hours, until the noodles are tender. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese blend on top, cover and cook for about 5 minutes longer, until melted. Let the lasagna cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
