Weight watchers recipe (salt not included ) feel free to use salt if needed but its not in the ingredients. You may consider MRS Dash to avoid the sodium increase. Makes 4 rather large servings could feed more.

I like to add a dallop of fat free sour cream on it.

Black Bean & Corn Enchilada Casserole
Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

Easy and tasty! Filling casserole that's light on calories and fat but good on protein for a casserole. Very saucy, so if you like it drier, add less sauce.

http://www.pbs.org/everydayfood/recipes/Basil_Pesto.html
"This simple Italian sauce brings summery flavor to all sorts of dishes, including pizza and pasta. When you plan on freezing pesto, cook the basil briefly in salted water before mixing with the other ingredients; this will help preserve its bright color and fresh taste. Pesto is traditionally made with cheese, but we find it's just as good without (and it freezes better, too). If you like, add a bit of grated Parmesan after pesto has thawed." Everyday Food
