An old WW recipe - I think it converts to about 5 points/serving. When we made this recently, one of my sons couldn't stop eating it! A very different and healthy lasagna recipe which we enjoyed.

Loved the cheese sauce! Just wish there had been more of it. There wasn't enough sauce to bind all the vegetables, so serving a piece was a bit tricky. Only change I made was to start with fresh spinach and broccoli. I steamed them both and continued as directed. Excellent flavor in this dish! Next time I will multiply the sauce by 1 1/2.

ellie_, this was delicious! It was a hit for my whole household, which is tough to get with a veg main dish. I loved the heartiness of the beans mixed with the comfort of cheese sauce...mmm. I used fresh swiss chard instead of spinach and fresh broccoli and just steamed it all first. There seemed to be plenty of sauce for us, though I will say I used skim milk which may have made it less thick and therefore given more coverage. I also only used 8 oz cheese. Thanks so much for posting, this is a total keeper! Made for Veg*n Swap #16.
