Kale and Butternut Squash Lasagna with Herbed Ricotta
This vegetarian lasagna is the perfect dish to make when it’s starting to feel like spring, but you’re still craving cozy comfort food. Sautéed kale and tender butternut squash make this version feel filling, yet healthy, while fresh herbs and lemon zest keep it light and bright. Lasagna is an involved dish to prepare, but it’s a great way to get the whole family involved in dinner. Assign everyone a component to make – sauté the kale, roast the squash or cook the lasagna noodles – and the casserole comes together with little fuss.
Chef Hack: Butternut squash is a tricky ingredient to prepare because its thick skin makes it very hard to peel. Here, we cook the squash briefly in the microwave to loosen the skin, making it much easier to prep.
