We loved this dish and I will definitely make it again. I used tortillas instead of pasta (just what I had on hand, on the suggestion of others) and it turned out nicely. I used regular refried beans instead of the refried black beans, green pepper in place of the red, and I added some green onions on top. I also followed another user's tip on using half enchilada sauce and half tomato sauce and I think it gave it a nice kick. My fiance hates cilantro, unfortunately, so the enchilada sauce gave it some flavor to make up for the missing herb. I also put in half a packet of taco seasoning into the cheese mixture. It made quite a bit, and I'm looking forward to the leftovers for dinner all week. I'm also excited about changing up the recipe, using chicken, tofu, or beef to switch things up a bit. Thanks for a great recipe!
New Note: last night I used pinto beans instead of black beans and it was awesome! We had guests for the weekend and they always want me to make this dish. I always happily oblige :)
