This dish takes some time, but worth every minute.  For those who are Paleo/Keto, you can always add some shredded pastured pork, chicken or ground beef to the sauce.  This one is vegetarian.

Butternut Squash Lasagna
Beautiful creamy dish. And the squash puts a little sweetness to it. If you really want everything to be made from scratch, you can make your sauce ahead of time and your ricotta ahead of time. I used shortcuts with this one and used grass fed ricotta from the store as well as sauce from the jar. Simple sauce with no sugar (I used Aldi Organic Marinara).

  3. In the same saute pan add spinach and bone broth and cook until just tender. Place in colander and drain...(Drink that good juice).

By the tablespoon, add ricotta cheese and smooth it with a spoon to cover squash. Add a layer of mushrooms, and then spinach. Cover with mozzarella and a parmesean. Cover with sauce and spread with a spoon. Repeat until all ingredients are used ending wih a layer of squash. Cover with sauce, mozzarella and parm. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
