You see, Lasagna is Grumpy’s favorite dish. Meat and cheese laden lasagna. So, in my desire for this dish, I knew I was going to be taking a big, big chance. When Grumpy asked me what was for dinner I said “well, I made butternut squash lasagna, but you can have hotdogs if you don’t want to eat that,” while kinda of “rolling” my eyes around innocently. His response? “Hotdogs, with lasagna???!! Um, I don’t think so.” So, it was decided he would try the lasagna and if he didn’t like it he could eat Banana Nut Cheerios (which has been our choice for dinner a couple of nights in a row lately).
Oh, I bet your wondering about whether Grumpy liked it? Well, he never poured that bowl of cereal. When I asked him what the thought, his words were “it’s ok”. No ranting and raving by him, but I loved it (if that matters 😉 lol) Grumpy does tell me that he’s the star of the show here. I thought it was hearty and had awesome flavor. If you have been thinking about making Butternut Squash Lasagna then I would stop thinking and start cooking. 😉
You can CLICK HERE for the recipe. A couple notes about what I did:
1. I used Barilla Fire Roasted Pasta Sauce instead of making my own (there is a recipe for the pasta sauce on the lasagna recipe page).
2. I did not microwave my butternut squash. Instead, I roasted it for about 30 minutes in the oven (until still slightly firm but tender) with a little PAM Spray and salt & pepper.
