    A huge favorite with non-healthy, picky, and healthy eaters alike. A wonderful combination of fall flavors that will delight your tastebuds! Adapted from Eating Well magazine 2006. This would made a great Thanksgiving or Christmas main dish-or any holiday!

      Just made it. I actually had everything, even the whole wheat noodles (which I love). I was planning on another dish this weekend, so I just used them. I had a free hour and thought I would make something for lunch tomorrow with the guys I work with. And I happen to have a 1/2 butternut from last week, so how perfect. I did have to go and get some more parm. First when I test a recipe, I usually cut in half. 1/2 with my changes and 1/2 as is. I try to. Well I have 2 4x4, type pans I use for testing my catering dishes, so this is what I used. A nice recipe, but for me ... it lacked seasoning. I made one as is. Then I made my version. I did add the nuts on each layer and added 1/2 for your recipe, and fine chopped. I also added mozzarella along with the parm. There wasn't enough cheese for me, and I did use a mix of heavy cream and cream and more thyme, along with some rosemary. I know it is a healthy lasagna, and the flavor was good and I am glad I tried it. I wanted to see if I could enjoy a lighter version of lasagna. But for me to enjoy lasagna, I guess I need that creamy cheesy goodness and all that fat. But I am glad I tried it because it does have great flavor. And I will make it again, just more spice, cream and cheese. I also might try adding fennel which would compliment the squash.
