Black Bean Lasagna

Black Bean Lasagna by Sweet Pea

Black Bean Lasagna is a dish that I’ve made for many years that is always enjoyed.  This is a meatless lasagna that it easy to put together.  It doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and it uses noodles that don’t have to be boiled, they bake in the oven with the dish.  (See below for a printable recipe.)

This recipe comes from a local church cookbook.  This church is as lovely in person as it is on the cover of the cookbook.

Let the Serving Begin


The lasagna will be a bit watery on top when it finishes baking.  Wait 15 minutes for it to firm up before slicing it.

Most people would consider this a wintertime dish but we like it any time of year.

    Do you enjoy church cookbooks like I do?



    1. Paula, you had me at meatless! Lasagna is one of my all-time favorites, and this particular recipe looks absolutely wonderful. I’m putting it on my to-make list asap… well, that is, once it cools down enough to turn on the oven!

    2. Oh, I will be saving this one to have when I figure out the gluten free lasagna noodles! Thanks. I love church cookbooks. I think I have three of them, from three different churches!! I am pinning this so I don’t lose it.
