Title: Black bean lasagna kinstlinger-bruhn
Yield: 1 Servings
1 1/2 c (9 ounces) dried black
-beans; picked over and
2 1/4 ts Salt
1 Bay leaf
1/2 ts Pepper
5 tb Olive oil
1 sm Onion
4 Garlic cloves
3/4 c Dry red wine
2 c Tomato purée
2 c Canned crushed tomatoes
1 ts Sugar
1 ts Dried oregano; crumbled
2 c Part-skim-milk ricotta
1 lg Egg; beaten lightly
1/4 c Chopped fresh coriander
1 c Freshly grated Parmesan
9 Dried lasagna noodles
1 lb Part-skim-milk mozzarella;
Let the beans soak overnight in cold water to cover by 2 inches.
Drain the beans and in a saucepan combine them with 4 1/2 cups water,
1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt, the bay leaf, and the pepper. Bring the
water to a boil and simmer the beans for 1 1/4 hours, or until they
are tender. Drain the beans and in the food processor purée 1 cup of
them with 2 tablespoons of the oil, reserving the remaining beans.
In a saucepan cook the onions and the garlic in the remaining 3
tablespoons oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until the onion
is softened. Add the wine and boil the mixture, stirring, until the
liquid is almost evaporated. Add the tomato purée, the crushed
tomatoes, the sugar, the oregano, the remaining 3/4 tablespoon salt,
and the reserved beans and simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally,
for 1 hour. (Do not let the sauce come to a boil.) The sauce may be
made in advance and frozen for 3 months.
In a bowl combine the ricotta, the egg, the coriander, and 1/2 cup of
the Parmesan. In a kettle of boiling salted water cook the noodles
for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are al dente, drain them in a
colander, and rinse them under cold water. In a lightly oiled baking
dish, 13 by 9 inches, arrange 3 of the noodles and over them spread
half the ricotta mixture and then one third of the tomato bean sauce.
Arrange one third of the mozzarella over the sauce and sprinkle it
with one third of the remaining Parmesan. Layer 3 of the remaining
noodles over the Parmesan, spread the puréed bean mixture and half
the remaining tomato bean sauce over the noodles, and top the sauce
with half the remaining mozzarella and half the remaining Parmesan.
Arrange the 3 remaining noodles over the cheese, spoon the remaining
ricotta mixture and tomato bean sauce over them, and top the sauce
with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake the lasagna in the
middle of a preheated 375°F. oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until it
