OMG! This is by far the best new recipe I've tried lately. I love butternut squash, but this recipe takes it to a whole other level. The Alfredo sauce is absolutely perfect. The lasagna looked and smelled wonderful. And the creaminess of the sauce combined with the creamy texture of the roasted butternut squash was a match made in heaven. Don't alter this recipe as it is perfect as it is.

Am I missing something, or does this recipe not include the Butternut Squash in the Butternut Squash Lasagna? It layers the noodles, sauce, and Parmesan, but seems to have left out the squash.

Hey Jeri, I tried it & I agree, it was really good. I did change 1 thing though, I used Quinoa flour instead of all purpose, which I never use anymore. It was really good.
