Here's a uniquely delicious way to serve lasagna for the holidays.
Bake up a butternut, then squash it with lasagna. That's the idea behind this brilliant comfort food dish. It features everything you already love about life, served in a bright orange gourd and ready to be eaten in about an hour.
When's the last time you had a five-ingredient line-up for dinner? Well, you do tonight. Let's get this thang done!
Start by roasting your butternut squash. You'll then wanna cut it in half and scoop out the center of your squash. A little drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper preps the gourd for the rest of the ingredients.
Pop your butternut into a baking dish, then spread a smidge of Muir Glen spaghetti sauce into the bottom of your squash.
Now you're just gonna start layering. Sauce, noodles, cheese, sauce, noodles, cheese. I fit 6 layers of the stuff into my squash. You could go 7 if you're feeling really bold.
Cover the squash with aluminum foil, then bake in a preheated 375ºF oven for about 40 minutes. Remove the tin foil from the top, brown your cheese, and sprinkle with basil just before serving.
One large butternut can feed 4-6 people.
Slice, serve, and scoop right into this deliciously easy dinner!
