  • 2
    tablespoons oil

  • 1 12
    cups shredded parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • Reduce temperature to 375°F and butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • Toast hazelnuts on a baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Pour 1 cup sauce into baking dish and cover with 3 lasagna sheets, making sure they do not touch each other. Layer ½ of squash, cover with 1 cup sauce, 1/2 cup Parmesan and 1/3 cup nuts. Repeat layer and top with 3 sheets of pasta, cover with remaining sauce.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese and nuts over sauce.
