I'd give this a 4 for flavour, but an overall rating a 3. The mix of beans and meat is great (I used lean ground turkey instead of beef). The idea of sour cream and olives is also good. The main problems with this dish are the cooking method/time and the size of the final dish. Next time I will precook the meat, and then add mix it with the beans. I will layer the sauce, undiluted, between each layer, and pre-cook the pasta. As always, I use whole wheat pasta. I would add many more spices; even though I added more this time, it was not enough. Finally, I'd add some cheese to the layers instead of having it all on top, for a better balance. I would also add layers of cooked vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. The lasagne turned out very flat, almost half the height of every other lasagne I've made.
