Mexican Veggie Lasagna

  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed (or 1½ cups cooked black beans)
  • 1½ cups fresh or frozen corn kernels         
  •  ½ cup chopped bell peppers
  • ½ cup onions, chopped or sliced
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. cumin powder
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 9-12 no-boiled lasagna noodles or (no boil noodles)
  • 8 oz. shredded Mexican blend cheese or cheddar cheese or pepper jack cheese                                                                                                                   

• Preheat the oven to 400˚ F.  Have a 9 x 9-inch baking dish ready.

• In a pan, add 1 tsp oil and add the green bell peppers, onions, black beans, corn, oregano, garlic powder, cumin powder, and salt, chili flakes and taco seasoning and cook them until the veggies are slightly tender. Add the tomato puree and cook for 3 minutes.

• Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over the bottom of the baking so that the lasagna does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Layer with a 3-4 lasagna noodles, breaking them as needed to fit the pan.  On top of the layer of noodles, spread about one third of the bean mixture. Sprinkle with one quarter of the cheese.

• Repeat the layering process two times more (noodles, beans mixture, cheese, noodles, beans mixture, cheese).  The last layer will be noodles, tomatoes, and cheese.  Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.  Bake 35-45 minutes, or until noodles are tender and cooked through.  Remove the foil from the top and bake 5 minutes more, until the cheese is melted.  Remove from the oven and let stand at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving

I agree that straps and bracelets look really nice replica watches uk when they fit flush with the watch case. I have no doubt there is a reason for how Rolex designed the end of the strap - there is pretty much a [good] reason for everything that Rolex does. My guess is that given the material of the strap, it simply would replica watches uk not look nice right up against the case as the strap moved around. The second issue is limited adjustability. The Oysterflex strap will come in six different sizes and you'll need to choose the right fit for you when you buy it. There is replica watches uk some micro-adjustability in the deployant clasp but you'll need to choose only one strap option. Even cutting the replica watches uk straps to size is not really and option because of the metal part in the strap. You'll get a nice clean look with this decisions, but you can't share watches with friends and replica watches uk if you ever do, you'll need to purchase another Oysterflex strap directly from Rolex.
