Recipe Of The Day: Butternut Squash Lasagna


Recommended Posts

i love butternut squash. since i can't eat pasta any more i'd change the noodles to something else, but i'd eat this in a heartbeat. certainly has to be better than the frozen stouffer's vegetarian lasagna ever-present at every church potluck i attend.

There are actually noodles you can make out of zucchini if you cut it properly. That's what I'd go with. I can get casseroles any time.

I did that a couple of weeks ago with spaghetti squash.  It literally made a bowl of noodles.

Correct, it is not pasta and will never replace real lasagna sheets. So please let's not appropriate a name if something very specific and make some bastardized dish that doesn't represent it. 

By the way, last week I made an excellent lasagna using a meat sauce that had braised short rib. It was absolutely delicious. The way it was intended, not a vegetable casserole.

No, those were not literally noodles.

That was spaghetti squash cut a different way.

Mine were even more noodly looking.  Very plain tasting.  I know you want to poo poo it, but if someone is trying to cut carbs, this is an option.

Have you even tried spaghetti squash?

Yes. It's not spaghetti, it's just thin sliced squash. It doesn't hold up well in a sauce and looses it's texture. Now if you want to find a more appropriate name for it rather than taking an actual name of a specific food then we're on another subject of vegetables and their varied uses.

You didn't cook it right.

I didn't cook it. I left that to the chefs at the restaurant I went to. If they botched it I can only imagine how poorly I would do on my own. 

I like vegetables and a wide variety but I don't find forcing them into dishes they don't belong apitizing. Like lasagna with butternut squash. It's just not going to elevate a dish that has texture problems to start with. On the other hand I do like mushroom and spinach combinations.

Who orders spaghetti squash at a restaurant?  Sounds kinda queer.
