Recipe by Shawn C

I love twisting up old favorites to a new flavor. Try this for a dinner party or for a pot luck. Since you can make it ahead, it really saves some time.

Sorry, but I can't keep this recipe in 'my cookbook'. The noodles didn't fit the pan (there was about 2-3" of nothing on either side of the pan with the noodles in the middle). We thought the refried beans kinda took center-stage and I don't really care that much for them as it is. Sorry, maybe it's just personal taste :(
