    Sharlene~W's Note:

    A Tex-Mex kind of lasagna. I had this at a "100 Chefs for UNCF" banquet a few years back. (UNCF = United Negro College Fund) The chef, Jerry Richard was kind enough to share his recipe.

      This is really a wonderful lasagna! I had a 30-oz can of black beans so I used the whole thing....I loved the "meaty" texture from the semi mashed beans. For the cheese, I used half cheddar and half mozzarella. This has a great tex-mex flavor without being too spicy for kids. I will definitley make this again. Thanx!

      I made this for a party and everyone loved it. It almost reminds me of chili. I doubled the recipe, used red peppers (preference) and 3 diced jalepenos along with a good dose of cayenne. I also used mozzerella and some shaved pepperjack. Really great with the added heat, I don't know that I would have enjoyed this as much without it. Definately a keeper!

      This was excellent. I always much around with recipes, rarely follow one exactly, so here are the modifications I made: used 2 cups of medium salsa (thick and chunky as you wrote), and cut back on the crushed tomatoes; used more cheese because I didn't measure and I have a heavy hand with cheese - used reduced fat sharp cheddar and part skim ricotta. My husband and I like leftovers, and this got better each day. Made it twice within a short time period because we liked it so much. Thank you!
