#Meatless

THE RECIPE

Roasted Butternut Lasagna with Crispy Sage

A cold weather classic revamped

Lasagna is the quintessential stick-to-your ribs cold weather comfort food and this variation puts a deliciously seasonal meatless spin on a classic recipe. Instead of using a meat-filled red sauce, Kristin layers lasagna noodles with sweet roasted butternut squash puree, cheese, and a creamy bechamel then tops it all off with earthy crispy sage leaves that were baked alongside the squash. Possibly the most unique part of this dish is the bechamel, which uses cashew cream (cashew nuts blended with milk until smooth) that gives the sauce a bit of a healthy boost and a I-can’t-my-finger-on-it nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with the squash and sage. And, as long as you’re making one pan, why not assemble another to freeze and enjoy later? Trust us, you’ll want to eat this again.
