For the Butternut Squash Puree:

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional, for added warmth)

For the Spinach Filling:

  • 1 pound fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the Lasagna:

  • 12 lasagna noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil or parsley for garnish


  1. Roast the Butternut Squash: Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Toss the diced butternut squash with olive oil, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Roast in the oven until tender, about 25-30 minutes. Mash or blend into a smooth puree.
  2. Sauté the Spinach: In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add chopped spinach and cook until wilted. Season with salt and black pepper. Remove excess liquid, if any.
  3. Prepare the Cheese Mixture: In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, beaten egg, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a creamy cheese filling.
  4. Assemble the Lasagna: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). In a baking dish, spread a thin layer of butternut squash puree. Place a layer of cooked lasagna noodles on top. Add half of the cheese mixture, followed by half of the sautéed spinach. Repeat the layers, finishing with a final layer of butternut squash puree.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Cover the lasagna with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until the top is golden and bubbly.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Allow the lasagna to rest for a few minutes before slicing. Garnish with fresh basil or parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
  7. Savor the Harvest: Serve the Butternut Squash and Spinach 3-Cheese Lasagna warm, and savor the layers of autumnal goodness in each forkful.
