Meatless on Monday #17

I missed last week so here goes another Meatless.  I really don't have a true recipe for this so you'll have to figure out how many people you're feeding and adapt.

I made several small casseroles so this is a big recipe.  I'm still not quite sure what to call this recipe.

My Meatless Casserole

2-4 cups cooked rice
2 cans tomato sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 can black beans
2 fresh jalapenos, sliced
1 onion, chopped and sauteed
1/2 pound spinach, steamed
1 zucchini, sliced
2 cups shredded mozarrella cheese (or more)

Mix tomato sauce, chili powder, pepper and paprika in a saucepan and heat on low.  

Spread cooked rice over the bottom of your pan.

Add a layer of onion. Add a layer of black beans and top with a sprinkle of cheese.  Add a layer of spinach and jalapenos.  Spoon tomato sauce mixture over the entire casserole.  Top with sliced zucchini and cover with cheese.

Bake covered at 400 for 45 minutes (give or take).  Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

  7. I think I can make this for son and I, though I will have to take out the zucchini, he will freak. I would like to make more meatless meals, I know it is healthier and cheaper. going to pin this and check out your other meatless meals.
