Happy Sunday! I’ve made you Lasagna! With Roasted Butternut Squash!! Eeeeek! SO GOOD!

It’s been nearly a bazillion years since I last shared a lasagna recipe. I thought it was time to change that because this Butternut Squash Lasagna is the best thing, yet. 

Oh me goodness. This lasagna was the talk of the town (household) for daaaaays when I first made it, some 2 months ago. I know I waited too long to try this, but it isn’t my fault. It’s the Hubs. He is really picky about his food. Like, annoyingly picky!

You know those kids that are SO picky with their food, but they eventually grow out of it?! Well, that’s my husband. Except he never grew out of it.

He practically begged me on hands and knees not to add squash to the lasagna; “PLEASE! Leave my lasagna meaty and tomato-ey! I beg you! Please!!” His.exact.words.

Things got even more interesting when he saw me whip out the rosemary. Oh I wish you could have seen his face! The guy was ready to cry.

He hates rosemary and always whines about how it smells like soap. He then made a remark about making himself fried eggs for dinner. I just went on about my biznass, totally ignoring him, as I usually do… Believe me, you would, too, because 99% of the time he LOVES the food that comes out of this kitchen.

The results were just as I expected. I honestly don’t know what to saaaaaaaaay! I don’t know how to best describe this insanely delicious lasagna! It’s cheesy, it’s creamy, it’s gooey, it’s sweet, it’s salty… it’s it’s it’s!!!

Do I have to convince you to try it?! I mean, don’t these ingredients say it all? We’re talking butternut squash, bechamel sauce, rosemary, chili powder, garlic… MMMMM!

Or how about the photos? Those always speak volumes, right?

Even if you don’t think you like squash or rosemary, you will love them, together, in this one-dish meal. Oh yeah! To add, it’s also a one-dish meal!! SCORE! Less things to wash, more food to eat!

ENJOY!

  1. I made this for a dinner party last night. Really great and much more special than a traditional lasagna. I will keep this recipe and use it again, maybe for the vegetarians at Thanksgiving. I didn’t quite get mixing the sauce with the slices of squash so I laid the squash down in a layer and brushed on the sauce to cover. Lovely recipe.

  2. This looks so delicious. I especially appreciate the options that it gives people with special diets. I have pinned it to my “Taste of Fall” board.

  3. Used this as an inspiration for my own lasagne. blended the squash into the sauce to make it smooth. I also used sage as well. Used ricotta cheese and spinach mixture between layers in place of the parmesan. Didn’t use the heavy cream. AMAZING! Thanks for the jumping off point!
