Butternut Squash Lasagna

Who says Thanksgiving dinner can’t be a one-dish-wonder? This butternut squash lasagna combines some of our favorite festive flavors - sweet roasted squash, creamy greens and melty Parmesan. And if your cranberry sauce happens to migrate toward a slice of this, we don’t think you’ll be sad about it.


Serves 12 1.5 hours Difficult

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400℉ and coat the bottom of a 13 x 9 casserole dish with a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Cook lasagna noodles according to instructions on package and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss butternut squash pieces with olive oil, salt and pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg, and stir well to coat. Turn squash out onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the squash is golden brown on the edges and very soft in the center. Set squash aside to cool.
  • In a large sauté pan over medium heat, sauté the chopped onions in 1 tbsp olive oil until translucent. Add the mixed greens and garlic powder and continue to cook until the greens are soft. Add the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, 1 cup of heavy cream and the ricotta cheese to the pan. Mix well to incorporate all ingredients and set aside.
  • In a small food processor, combine the Amy’s Light in Sodium Butternut Squash Soup, the roasted butternut squash pieces and ½ cup of heavy cream. Season again with salt and pepper then process the mixture until it’s very smooth.
  • Pour ⅓ of the squash purée into the lasagna pan to cover the bottom then top with a layer of lasagna noodles. On top of that layer, add ½ of the ricotta and greens mixture then top with a handful of the Italian cheese blend. Top with one more layer of lasagna noodles then repeat the process for another set of layers. Top with the remaining lasagna noodles and the last ⅓ of the butternut squash purée and a final handful of the shredded cheese.
  • Cover lasagna with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until the top of the lasagna is golden brown and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes before enjoying!
