A hankering for lasagna used to mean a long time in the kitchen and a huge baking pan fit for a crowd. Our recipe has made small-batch lasagna possible in under 30 minutes. This butternut squash lasagna is hearty, flavorful and easy to prepare. Full of all the warming notes of wintertime dinner, the rich, cheesy topping and tender noodles make this Italian-inspired dish true comfort food. Cook this for two or one, with leftovers for another night. Serve with a crunchy, fresh green salad and a light lemon vinaigrette. If you have some frozen spinach, heat it and remove excess moisture and you can add it as a layer in your lasagna fore more vegetable presence.
