1 can ff vegetarian refried beans
1 12 oz bottle mild taco sauce
2 cans stewed tomatoes, one drained, one not
1 cup ff cottage cheese
1 cup corn kernels, frozen is ok
10-12 lasagne noodles, uncooked
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
In a bowl mix beans with about half the juice from one can of tomatoes
and a couple of tablespoons of taco sauce. You want the beans to be
almost but not quite pourable. Mix the rest of the taco sauce and
tomato juice and set aside.
Put about a quarter of the taco sauce mixture in the bottom of a 9x13"
lasagne pan. Cover sauce with a layer of noodles. Layer, in any order
you want, the beans, corn, cheese, drained tomatoes, sauce and noodles,
being sure to end up with enough beans to cover the top with no noodles
showing. The resulting mess should be pretty wet.
Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 for about an hour, until the
noodles are tender. Check every 5-10 minutes after 45 minutes of cooking
to see how the noodles are doing. Remove foil, sprinkle with olives. Bake
another couple of minutes. Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
Serves 3-4 as a main dish. Tastes even better the next day.
Variation: If you want to pre-cook the noodles, don't use as much tomato
juice and cook for only about 30 minutes.
