So, what do you get when ravioli, lasagna, and black bean salsa collide?  Spicy Tex-Mex Ravioli Lasagna, of course!  Oh, and a very tasty and satisfying dinner, too.

This is one of those recipes that as soon as I saw it, I just knew I had to give it a try.  I came across it in a cookbook compiled by the church of one of our family friends.  Church and family cookbooks are my favorite!  I love to read all the wonderful home-cookin' recipe favorites.  And I read them cover-to-cover like a novel, always alert for a new recipe to try.

I was so intrigued and excited when I came across this one.

As usual, I messed with the original recipe to tweak it a bit.  You know, 'cause that's just what I do.  I love messin' around with recipes!  {But you could probably figure that out since I write a food blog, right??}  And the hubby and I are so pleased with the result.  It may just be one of our favorite new go-to easy dinners.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how simple it is!

How to Make Mexican Ravioli Lasagna:

First, you whip up a quick sauce of salsa ... whatever 'heat' you desire, ... tomato sauce, and a touch of ground cumin.  Put a teeny bit of the sauce in the bottom of a baking dish and layer on some ravioli ... you know, the kind you buy all prepared in the freezer section.

Easy so far, right?

Next, create a layer of black beans, green onions, and cilantro ...

... and top it off with some of the salsa sauce.

Then next up ... another layer of ravioli. Still easy, right?

Finish it all off with the last of the salsa sauce and a layer of cheese.
