Rumbamel's Taste of Home Fiesta Lasagna

Submitted by: RUMBAMEL

Introduction

I got this recipe from a Taste of Home Cooking School I went to. I used parsley instead of cilantro and whole wheat noodles instead of oven ready white noodles. I lightened up most everything I could. It was a big hit at the playgroup potluck tonight! It makes 12 huge servings. I made it in to square glass dishes and froze one. They said to cook the frozen one straight from the freezer at 350 degrees for 1 hr 20 min instead of 375 degrees for 45 min. YUM! I got this recipe from a Taste of Home Cooking School I went to.

Ingredients

    2 15 oz cans Stokes Green Chile Sauce with Pork
    1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained (I used walmart)
    1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (I used Aldi)
    11 oz corn (it actually called for a can drained, but I had frozen, so that's what I used)
    1 2.25 oz can sliced black olives
    1/2 T dried parsley
    1 package 40% less sodium Old El Paso taco seasoning

    1 15 oz carton part skim Ricotta Cheese (I used Walmart brand)
    1 cup/8 oz Daisy lite sour cream
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    2 cup pizza cheese, divided, (I used Shop n Save brand, they actually called for Mexican cheese, but I didn't have any and this is probably less calories anyway)

    1 package Ronzoni Healthy Harvest whole wheat lasagna noodles ( I used 20 noodles of the 13.25 oz box which had about 24 in it.)

Directions

Boil your noodles according to the package directions. Drain, rinse and cool as you prepare the following:

In a large bowl mix: Stokes sauces, black beans, tomatoes, corn, olives, parsley and taco seasoning.

In another bowl mix: ricotta cheese, sour cream, egg and 1 cup of the pizza cheese.

You will need to decide if you are making two casserole or one. I made two and just divided the amounts so I will tell it that way and if you want to just make one large dish then multiply the Stokes sauce mixture and the cheese by 2 and change the noodle layers from 2 to 3.

Ok, in each of 2 square glass casserole dishes spread 1/2 cup of the Stokes chile mix. Then layer evenly two noodles cutting each of the noodles as they reach the ends of the dish and then laying those pieces in the third row. You will have 3 rows, but use only 2 noodles. Now spread 1/2 C of the ricotta mix on top of the noodles. Top with 3/4 C of the Stokes chile mix.

Continue this pattern of noodles, ricotta and Stokes chile mix twice ending with the last of the 20 noodles and then cover with the remaining Stokes chile mix, completely covering the noodles.

Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 45 min then uncover, top each square with 1/4 c pizza cheese and bake another 15 min or until bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into 6 servings per square dish. I served with freshing slices of tomotoes, sour cream and lettuce! It went over very well!!!!
