I have never made lasagna before, so I was worried about how this would turn out. To my amazement, it not only turned out delicious, but it actually looked good, too! I followed the recipe exactly. I don't have lasagna experience, so I'm sure other reviewers will have different ways of making this, but I can't think of any changes that should be made. Also, I recommend taking the time to make your own sauce, rather than using a jar. The sauce was wonderful and really made the dish.
I wish I had added salt. And it definitely needed bigger than a 9x13. It was already at the top of the pan when I had only done 2 layers. So I flipped it over into a 10x15.
Made this for Thanksgiving and it was great, though needed a little more seasoning than the recipe called for, especially salt and pepper.
I mistakingly bought a butternut squash instead of a spaghetti squash so I came here looking for a way to use it. Came across this recipe and absolutely loved it! I am a full time working mom with two young kids so I did the speedy version. I did not make my own sauce, I used Newman's Own Sockaroni sauce. I microwaved the butternut squash whole and then peeled and sliced it into thin slices once it cooled. Next time I will buy frozen spinach and thaw it to speed things up even more. Also, I did not use all of the cheese mixture, the lasagna was plenty big without using all of it and I figured it would cut down on the calories as well. Still turned out wonderfully and I love that this is a much healthier version of traditional lasagna. Thank you for sharing!
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED all this garden goodness! The sauce turned out a little thick for me, but this may have been because I used fresh tomatoes; I will just add more water next time. I crushed the butternut squash and this helped it to not be so chunky. I loved the sweetness of the squash, but my hubby and kids did not, so I would probably leave it out next time. Otherwise it was wonderful, wholesome, and delicious! It is lots of layers, so make sure you have a deep dish to cook this one! Thanks for a great keeper!!
This a really good lasagna- And the first time I made one myself! I would omit the zucchini next time. Many said this was somewhat bland or needed more seasoning, so I seasoned to taste. The sauce I used a few more cloves of garlic, increased the spices (added marjoram, thyme, chili flakes, bay leaf & rosemary), used ground pork (worked well enough since it's a white meat- I would drain off the fat a little more next time though) and since the recipe called for 7.5 cups of liquid total, I divided it as such: 1 can diced, spicy tomatoes (with onions & seasoning), 1 cup tomato gravy (made with fresh tomatoes & bacon grease- had leftover from another recipe/meal), 1 cup spicy tomato sauce, 2 cups tomato paste & 2 cups water + beef bouillon cube. I forgot to mention that along with the meat portion, I had added the remains of a pack of cremini mushrooms. I only cooked it for roughly 45 minutes as the sauce had reached a consistency that I liked. I opted to boil my butternut squash after peeling and dicing for roughly half an hour, then mashed with a little butter and seasoned with sage, salt, garlic powder & pepper. Instead of simply wilted the spinach we opted to crisp them a bit and used 2 bags of fresh spinach. Opted for low-fat cottage cheese instead if ricotta and used low-fat mozzarella. Baked as directed, but you need deeper than a 9x13 and there will be leftover sauce (little bit). I seasoned the mixture with S&P. We served it with "Herb Spread for French Bread" from AR.
This was great, and took a lot of work, but could be even better pretty easily. I used bottled sauce. I cooked onions and garlic in a little evoo, then added the turkey, drained a little, added the sauce. Then made the ricotta layer and sliced the veggies. Also used frozen spinach well drained. And I used whole milk ricotta which made it better. Next time I'd use a peeler to get thin slices of zucchini, and season each layer (add s&P and maybe something else). I also mashed the squash which worked nicely. I used regular lasagna noodles and didn't add any water. It was pretty dry, but I like it that way. Will be making this again!!!
It was delicious! I added mushrooms on my recipe and just used regular lasagna.I only added 1/2 a cup of water and it was fine.I just tossed all the veggies with the sauce and it works.Thin slices.
