Step 3:  Assemble lasagna. Coat a square 8×8″ baking dish with cooking spray, then start by placing 2 noodles in the bottom of the dish. Cover noodles with half of squash mixture, then add 2 more noodles. Divide ricotta mixture in half and add layer of ricotta over noodles, then add 2 more noodles and repeat layers until the second ricotta layer is at the top. Cover ricotta with mozzarella cheese and remaining parmesan cheese.
