Use different salsa to vary the flavor for this meatless Tex-Mex lasagna. Make it smoky with chipotle salsa, or spice it up with the hot stuff.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients; spread 2/3 cup sauce in bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 2 noodles over sauce; top with 1/2 cup corn and half of beans. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; top with 2/3 cup sauce. Repeat layers once; top with remaining 2 noodles. Spread remaining sauce over noodles. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover and bake at 450° for 30 minutes or until noodles are tender and sauce is bubbly. Let stand 15 minutes. Sprinkle with onions.

My family loves this lasagna.  I agree that the noodles don't really hold the other ingredients and it is a bit soupy.  I think I will try the tortillas next time I make this.

This was really good. I added shredded chicken breast to the bean & corn mixture, so it was more hearty than the recipe as printed. These were huge portions; 2 of us only ate 1/4 of the recipe, with a green salad alongside. I used regular lasagna noodles and just soaked them in super hot water for a few minutes, and cooked the lasagna longer at a lower temp (350). We had a split decision; I liked the lasagna noodles, but hubby wanted tortillas instead. If I made this again, I would add a little sweetener (honey, agave, sugar, peanut butter) to the tomato mixture to smooth out the acid a bit. I have a feeling it will be better tomorrow.

This is a family favorite! Whole wheat no boil noodles work great with no time adjustment. I use mild salsa for the kids, otherwise they might not eat it as well as they do, and add one and a half cups of cooked shredded chicken to the beans and corn mixture. Definitely drain the diced tomatoes!

I thought this recipe was just okay. I wanted it to have more heft or a little more taste. My kids didn't like it at all (5 and 3). I may try the other suggestions listed here and try again, but I'm unsure if I'll really make again.

My whole family loved this recipe, preteen, teen and all! Nobody missed having meat and I used corn tortillas instead of noodles. I also topped it with avocado and lime juice.

I used whole wheat tortillas instead of noodles, and it was delicious! I think shredded chicken is a good alternative too.

Ok...why are we using pasta if it's a Tex Mex version? Wouldn't corn tortillas be a better route? More fiber, lower glycemic index. Just thinking ahead...

I've made a TON of recipes from Cooking Light and this is the only one my husband has asked me to take out of my book. He did not like the noodles so I have changed the noodles to tortillas and he loves it now.
