Butternut squash no noodle lasagna

Yes! Who says you can’y eat lasagna when you are trying to watch the carbs ? well well, i dug deep into my brain and butternut squash seemed the perfect replacement.

It’s very easy, First you slice the butternut squash into noodle shaped slices. If your slicing skills are poor then I would advice you to use a mandolin. Once sliced just place them on a baking tray and into the oven to bake at 400 F for 25 mintes.

Next cook the spinach and mushrooms. At this point you can use whatever sauce you like. You can keep it vegetarian like mine or opt for a lasagna meat sauce.

And I use eggs, cheese and milk to hold everything together, the glue to this lasagna if you may.

Meanwhile, stir egg, cheese, milk  together in a bowl until well combined. You can use cheddar, swiss cheese or ricotta for best results.

Assemble the lasagna, spread the sauce into the bottom of prepared pan. Then layer with butternut squash slices, cheese. Repeat by layering until all is done.Pour in the egg cheese milk mixture and top with extra cheese. You can top with parmesan cheese.

Bake for 50 minutes.  Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes:

  • The amount of spinach and mushrooms will depend on how much you want.

  • Half the cheese is to mix in with the eggs and milk and the other half should be for layering the lasagna.
