This hearty winter dish is a wonderful change of pace from the standard red-sauced lasagna.

Ingredients

All-purpose flour

¼ cup(s)

Fat free evaporated milk

2½ cup(s)

Garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), medium, minced

Grated Parmesan cheese

oz

Table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch, or to taste

Uncooked lasagna noodles

10 item(s), cooked al dente (about 12 noodles)

Cooked winter squash

1 cup(s), thawed if frozen

Part-skim mozzarella cheese

1 cup(s), shredded

Golden seedless raisins

¾ tbsp(s)

Pine nuts

2 tbsp(s), chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place flour in a small saucepan and very gradually whisk in the milk and garlic. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, until sauce simmers and is thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup of sauce over the bottom of a 9 X 13-inch glass or metal pan and cover with 3 lasagna noodles; top with 1/3 of the squash and 1/2 cup of sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of raisins. Cover with 3 more lasagna noodles and spread with 1/3 of the remaining squash and 1/2 cup of sauce; sprinkle with 1/4 cup of raisins. Cover with 3 more lasagna noodles and top with remaining squash and raisins; cover with last 3 lasagna noodles, pressing sheets firmly down. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with pine nuts and remaining mozzarella.
  4. Bake until lasagna is bubbling around the edges and browned on top, about 30 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.
