Even better, it is deceptively easy. It comes together in just a few minutes, but is still elegant enough to serve to guests. Plus it makes a great freezer meal if you partially bake it for about 30 minutes, then let cool and wrap well.

This dish is a great way to add some variety into your weekday meals without spending hours in the kitchen.

Gather the ingredients for this butternut squash lasagna: squash, ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, seasoning and lasagna noodles.

Here is what you need:

1 package no-cook lasagna noodles
2- 10oz packages frozen cooked squash, thawed
1 15 ounce carton ricotta cheese
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried sage or 1 tsp fresh
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
cooking spray

Mix the parmesan and ricotta cheese together in a bowl, then add salt and pepper.

Step 1: In a medium bowl, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to ricotta cheese and mix well. Set aside.

Add squash, salt, and pepper into a bowl and beat with a hand mixer until well-blended.

Step 2: In mixing bowl, add remaining salt, pepper, and sage to squash. Beat for approximately 20-30 seconds until well blended.

Assemble the lasagna, alternating between pasta sheets, squash mixture, and cheese spread.

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.

Cover the lasagna with foil before cooking.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover lasagna with foil, making sure the foil does not touch the cheese!

Bake lasagna for 30 minutes, then remove foil and cook for 25 more minutes uncovered.

Step 5: Bake 30 minutes covered, then remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes more, until lasagna is golden brown. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
