Afterwards I attempted a new recipe: Butternut Squash Lasagna
I thought it sounded like the perfect fall dish
The original recipe is from The Proud Italian Cook's blog...you can find her here:http://prouditaliancook.blogspot.com/
I don't usually use ricotta in lasagna...I do not like it, but I thought I would try it again for this recipe.
The line up to layering the lasagna: Butternut Squash chunks, ricotta mixture, and bechamal sauce with roasted garlic and various seasonings, not pictured: mozzarella cheese
ended up being 4 layers!
looking very yummy
The end result : Very good, very rich and I still do not like ricotta cheese. I will make this again minus the ricotta and replaced with Italian sausage. With the absence of meat, you could almost have a small piece to accompany a steak or other meat. Strange to think of lasagna as a "side dish" but anything is possible!
