A meatless lasagna that went over big with my family. Good for OAMC.

Okay, I have to admit that this sounded like a weird recipe. Spinach and black beans?? But I liked the end result! This really is like a Southwestern Lasagna in flavor. The spinach just blends beautifully into the lasagna and the pepper jack cheese gives it a nice kick. We enjoyed this as a variation of traditional lasagna. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
