Wonderful! After reading the reviews, I decided to add about 2 oz of pancetta to the baking sheet for the last 20 minutes in the oven, and I also used a whole head of garlic instead of only 2 cloves. It turned out very flavorful but still delicate. This will definitely be my favorite fall recipe!
This is fantastic. However, like a few other reviewers made note of, I agree it needs just a tad bit more of something. I did double the garlic but next time I make it I will probably add caramelized onion and maybe a tad bit more nutmeg. Goat cheese with herbs might also be worth trying. I used fresh pasta from the store. I think fresh pasta is key. This is a lot of work but it pays off. It's light and delicate.
I saw this recipe in the finecooking magazine and I immediately wanted to try it. I made the recipe as is except that I wasn't able to fit the full 4 layers of the squash in my lasagne pan (I managed 3). I also doubled the planko/butter topping and bought fresh lasagne noodles instead of making them. The only reason I am leaving 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because it was just this side of bland. I tasted everything before assembling and although all of it was delicious, I knew the flavor-seekers might moan. With a little extra thrill in mind, next time I will;
1, Double the garlic.
2, Use a flavored goat cheese (maybe one with herbs).
3, Caramelize an onion, deglaze with a little white wine and add them to the squash/garlic bowl and use my hand held blender instead of my masher to ensure the onions are well incorporated.
Also, I had leftover squash mixture which I turned into a delicious soup by adding another smaller roasted squash, 2 roasted red peppers, 2 more cloves of roasted garlic, a caramelized onion (cooked in more sage/thyme and bay leaves and then discarded) deglazed with white wine, blended in 3 cups of chicken stock and added a tablespoon of fresh ginger and a pinch of cayenne. I also thinned it out with half a cup of milk. As a side note, I'm sure if you had left over coconut milk, this soup would be a great place to use it !
I've made this recipe several times and it is awesome. I used ready made lasagne noodles...but it is still excellent. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe.
Absolutely delicious. I made my standard meat lasagna (at the request of my husband) at the same time as this recipe (for a vegetarian member of the family). It smelled delicious the entire time I was making it; and when brought to the table it didn't disappoint! Everyone absolutely loved it. I'll be making this recipe on a regular basis.
This isn't one of those quick and easy recipes, but the time spent creating this masterpiece will pay off with the first bite. I used store bought pasta, but next time I'd like to use fresh pasta.
Made homemade pasta for the first time last night using this recipe. It was amazing - I've been ruined for pasta now....I had no idea how much better it would be. It just melted in the mouth. I really like the squash lasagne and it had really nice smooth flavours. I think next time I would add a few things just to make make the flavours a bit more complex and give them a bit of depth. I'd perhaps add some chopped sweated leeks, or a toasted nut of some sort, or perhaps a bit of bacon to add a bit of smokey flavour.
Wow. The aromas and textures of this lasagne are intoxicating. I did in steps over three days. Felt like the amount of squash mixture was tight. Definitely a new party-fare staple, e.g. for SuperBowl Sunday. I've made fresh pasta before but never fresh lasagne. A real winner, but one must allow enough time to make when one includes the cooling, and resting, and roasting, and baking, etc.
INCREDIBLE! I made a few mods to this recipe. I couldn't get goat cheese at my supermarket, so I subbed the goat with pepper Boursin. I also put the zest of one lemon in the squash mixture. If you like garlic, use two cloves while baking squash instead of the 1.
You will be happy you put the time into this recipe!
Made this dish for our Christmas vegetarian foodies....and I even loved it. This will become a holiday tradition in this kitchen. I have already dreamed up a few of my own variations, including bleu cheese mashed potatoes.
Definitely a great recipe and taste but I could see after eating it that I am more of a meat lasagne kind of guy. Everyone else gave it rave reviews. I made the pasta which was my first attempt at doing that and it probably worked well with this recipe as it kept it light. The first batch of noodles I made were too thin so I doubled up on the layering and it worked out well.
Outstanding is recipe. Made the fresh pasta and the filling using skim milk with no change to the recipe. Would difinitely make it again.
Excellent dish and I have to agree with the other reviewers that it is light. Made it for girls' night at my home and received rave reviews from all the girls!!
Loved this recipe, I made double one with squash and one with pumpkin.(and ended up with leftover noodles for a third smaller lasagna - that I threw together with canned sauce and frozen spinach)
It's creamy without being too heavy, and satisfies my fettucine alfreado cravings.
This was really great and light to boot. Not that typical heavy feeling you get from a meat laden lasagna. The noodles were a lot of work but worth the time.
Excellent comfort food for the fall season! While making the dish, I thought to myself, "this smells like fall" and then dinner time arrived!!! Wonderful recipe and this will become a staple in our fall menu items!!! Highly recommend trying for a Sunday night dinner with friends/family!
