Butternut squash spinach lasagna

Nov 20 2020


1h 30mn

Serves 6

This is definitely a bit more work than what I usually do but totally worth it!!!


  • 1 box of no bake lasagna sheets ( you can use GF if you want to)
  • 1 container of ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup of Italian shredded cheese
  • 1 16oz bag of frozen spinach (thawed)
  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 1 tbsp of fresh sage leaves (chopped)
  • 5 tbs pof butter
  • 5 tbsp of flour ( you can use GF if u want to)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven at 400F.

In a medium pot melt the butter and add the flour to form a paste. Add the milk and whisk until totally combined. Add in the milk and using a wooden spoon keep on stirring until mixture thickens ( the takes approx. 3-5 minutes). When done add 1 cup of the cheese, the sage, nutmeg some salt and pepper.

Peel the butternut squash, cut in 2, remove the seeds and thinly slice it.

Grease a large baking dish. Start layering the lasagna  with 1 cup of the cheese sauce, some noodles, squash slices, a couple of tbsp of  ricotta, spinach and repeat until you run out of noodles. You can finish with the sauce on top and add the remaining of the cheese.

Cover and bake for 1 hour, remove the foil and broil for 5 more minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly!

      I did not add salt because my husband never likes when it is too salty and like you said cheese already adds some….

      Sorry I only saw this now…. I hope you were able to figure it out.
      I usually make 2 lasagna with a whole box. It also depends on the size on your baking dish and if you like a lot of pasta or not, I would say 3 layers total, and 2-3 sheets per layer.
      I always start with the sauce or the cheese sauce at the bottom, then a layer of pasta.
      Happy holidays to you as well 🙂
