Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F, meanwhile in a bowl season squash with salt & pepper, a drizzle of oil, & wrap with cling film. Microwave for 3 minutes.

  • Prepare the béchamel: melt butter in a saucepan, add onion, cook until soft. Add flour, squash, and stir for 3 minutes. Add milk and gently bring to a boil. Blend with an immersion (stick) blender, then season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside.

  • In a frying pan add olive oil and garlic, cook until golden. Then add spinach, season & sauté - set aside.

  • Build your lasagna: In a rectangular baking dish, spread a thin layer of béchamel sauce and then cover with lasagne sheets.

  • Add another layer of béchamel, then ¼ of the Marinara sauce, sautéed spinach, turkey-ham, cubes of squash and both types of cheese. Repeat 4 times.

  • Cover and bake lasagna for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 8-10 minutes until the corners are starting to brown and the lasagna is bubbling and thoroughly cooked.  Let rest 10 minutes.
