I get tired of traditional lasagna, because more often then not I don’t really want to eat the meat (ground beef) in the recipe. Traditional lasagna is generally noodles, tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and ground beef. This gets boring. I have tried some vegetable lasagna recipes in the past, but I didn’t love them hong kong homes for rent
This month since I am sharing squash recipes I tried to create a lasagna using squash. When this blog was just getting started a made a homemade ravioli using delicata squash. The squash was mixed with mascarpone cheese, which was a great combination. I did the same thing here. The result was delicious if I do say so myself! Back when I posted the ravioli recipe I had not discovered any recipe plug ins and my photos were just taken with my Iphone! Someday I will go back and redo that post kangertech box mod
This recipe does have a few steps and is best prepared when you have some time. A weekend afternoon when you are home would be the best time. I roasted the butternut squash first, which could take about an hour to do. The other steps can be started before the butternut squash is finished though 24 volt dc motors
I wanted to add another color to the lasagna since I was using a cheese sauce. I decided on spinach. I thought it would be the best choice and it works well. I sauteed the spinach in a bit of garlic and olive oil. This does not take long, so definitely wait until the squash is just about finished. You can cook the lasagna noodles around the same time as you cook the spinach.
I gave each vegetable their own layer. The squash is mashed just with a potato masher. The mascopone cheese is then mixed into the squash. I spinkled some mozzarella and parmesan cheese on top then added the next layer of lasagna noodles. Of course there is a base of sauce and lasagna noodles in the pan below the squash. The spinach and ricotta layer is next, followed by the top layer of noodles.
I baked the lasagna until the cheese melted and the sauce was bubbly. The colors of the vegetables are beautiful. I may never eat traditional lasagna again.
