Fat-free vegetarian refried beans make a tasty layer when combined with
corn kernels and chilies. Salsa, mild or spicy, is a great stand-in for
marinara sauce.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil 9-by 14- by 2-inch deep baking

Using small spatula, spread four uncooked lasagna noodles with one-third of
the refried beans. Lay noodles length-wise, side by side, ends even, in
center of baking dish. Sprinkle with one-half of the corn. Spread with
one-fourth of the salsa. Sprinkle with one-fourth of the cheese.

Repeat for second layer, except sprinkle beans with green chiles instead of
corn kernels.

Repeat for third layer, sprinkling beans with remaining corn. Top with last
four noodles, remaining salsa spread completely to edges of noodles and
remaining cheese. Carefully pour in vegetable broth at both ends.

Lightly oil 16-inch length of aluminum foil. Attach foil, oiled side down,
to ends of pan, tenting foil above lasagna surface. Crimp foil around all
edges of pan to seal.

Bake covered for 45 minutes. Using tongs, remove aluminum foil and discard.
Using bulb baster or spoon, baste top of lasagna with sauce from both ends.
Bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes.

Remove from oven. Let rest 15 minutes. Slice into 10 equal pieces using
sharp, serrated knife and cutting twice to ensure easy-to-serve pieces.
Makes 10 servings.

Variations: Replace dairy cheese with jalapeno-style soy cheese. For milder
lasagna, substitute half mozzarella for half the jalapeno cheese. For
bonafide chili-heads, substitute one-half can diced chipotle chilies in
adobo sauce, drained, for diced mild green canned chilies.
