Do you want a healthier meal that is delicious? After gardening this summer I made some yellow squash lasagna that has even more vegetables in it too.
Yellow Squash Lasagna Ingredients
- Yellow Squash
- 1 jar spaghetti squash
- 1 medium container cottage cheese
- 1 small package of mozzarella cheese
Yellow Squash Lasagna Directions
1. Cut your squash
You can use a peeler to make thin slices, cut them into wedges, or chop them up. I opted to chop it up into small bite-size cubes.
2. Put pasta sauce on the bottom of the pan
I coated the bottom of a 9×13″ pan with spaghetti sauce
3. Place 1/3 of the squash onto the sauce
I placed 1/3 of my squash on top of the sauce.
How do you bulk up lasagna?
- Add meat of your choice like beef, turkey, etc
- Add spinach and any vegetables of your choice
- Add mushrooms
- Add olives
- Add noodles
- Add a variety of cheeses
4. Add 1/3 of the cottage cheese
I spread 1/3 of the container of cottage cheese onto the squash. I use a spoon to place dollops around the pan and then spread them out with a spoon.
5. Add a little mozzarella cheese
I lightly spread some mozzarella cheese over the cottage cheese in the pan.
6. Add 2 more layers
Repeat the process of the layers 2 more times – sauce, veggies, cottage cheese, mozzarella, repeat.
What goes on the top layer of lasagna?
The top layer of lasagna is cheese.
I like to cover the top layer when putting it in the oven with tin foil to prevent the cheese from burning.
7. Bake the lasagna
I placed the covered lasagna in the oven and baked it at 350 degrees for 1 hour. I pulled the tinfoil off the pan for the last 10 minutes.
8. Pull out and let stand for 10 minutes
I pulled the lasagna out and let it cool for 10 minutes to help it set up. I was a little bummed that it was a little more watery than I wanted it to be and that the cheese had sunk down into the lasagna.
I ended up serving it in bowls as it served more like a casserole rather than a square piece of lasagna. It was really delicious! The history of lasagna is very interesting and I love how it’s something you can make so many different variations of.
