Squash & Sweet Potato Lasagna

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only two weeks away!  I am very excited but at the same time I have not done anything too Christmasy yet…which is sort of a bummer.  I don’t have much time, so I better do something to fix that!  Last year, we had a huge cooking baking extravaganza with our friend, Lauren…that is also the same time we discovered the best chocolate cookie recipe in the world (which, by the way, I can’t wait to make again).  I have a feeling that I’ll be in more of the Christmas mood once I start baking some cookies!

Today I have a fantastic recipe to share that I came across on How Sweet It Is.  How Sweet It Is is a brilliant blog and she comes up with some of the best recipes.  Every morning before I go to work I look forward to reading her post for the day.  When I saw her recipe for Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Whole Wheat Lasagna, I knew that I had to make it.   After she posted about her lasagna, she wrote a post on a recipe for Roasted Butternut Baked Penne.  This recipe is essentially the same dish as this lasagna except minus the whole lasagna thing…. We actually ended up making that version of this dish back in November.  We absolutely loved that so we couldn’t wait to try the lasagna!

This made for the perfect Sunday night dinner.  I am so glad that we made this because while it is similar to her baked butternut squash penne, it is at the same time, very different.  This dish definitely required more hands on time in comparison to the baked penne version.  However, I definitely think that it was worth it.  We loved everything about this lasagna.  In fact, we loved it so much that Christina and I gobbled the whole thing up for dinner.  The next time I make this, I will probably serve a simple salad along the side.

This is a very cheesy lasagna that truly has it all…brown butter, mascarpone, parmesan, mozzarella, sage, nutmeg, and shallots.  If you are looking for that unique, flavorful, and filling pasta dish…you have found it.



I hope your week kicks off to a good start!
