Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna

This month we have made Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna.  This may be different than your usual lasagna with two vegetables you likely don’t eat often, but because of the incredible benefits and wonderful flavors of this dish, we are sure this recipe will become a staple in your home.

Butternut squash is high in beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant that may help fight against free radical damage and help fend off cancer. Because beta-carotene is a fat-soluble vitamin make sure to include a small source of fat, such as canola oil or olive oil, when cooking.

Always choose whole wheat when buying pasta.  Whole wheat pasta has more protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals in their natural form than the white version of pasta. The higher fiber and protein content will help you feel fuller for a longer period of time.

We hope you enjoy this healthy take on lasagna as much as the classic recipe! We would love to hear what you think about it and how it turned out for you.
