      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!

      Wow, this was really good. Way better than I had expected. I did increase the cumin, as the first reviewer suggested. I didn't have pepper jack cheese so I used part-skim mozzarella and added a few spoonfuls of diced jalepeno to the ricotta mixed to compensate. I also used part-skim ricotta. I used only a few spoonfuls of cilantro as I just don't care much for it. I got about twelve servings out of it. Wonderful recipe I will be making again.

      This was very tasty and easy to make. The 9 noodles didn't fill my lasagne pan, so next time I'll use 12. I used 1 1/2 times the recommended amount of cumin, and it still wasn't quite enough. Even Meat lovin' hubby likes it!
