A comforting & delicious gluten-free and vegetarian butternut squash lasagna bursting with muenster and parmesan cheeses, sour cream and your favorite marinara sauce!
Lasagna is my comfort food; and it was only recently that I discovered the wonderful addition that butternut squash is to an already delicious staple . . .
Growing up as the only vegetarian in my family, my mom would always make me my favorite cheesy lasagna for Thanksgiving. Now, I realize it isn't all that common, but she would often use sour cream instead of the standard ricotta cheese; and let me tell you: it is delicious. I just cannot have it any other way. If you've never tried it, you're in for a treat! It really imparts a ricotta texture with an even better flavor. Throw in some butternut squash and some muenster cheese (it really complements the squash!), and you have one of the tastiest vegetarian lasagna's you've ever had! Trust me; this makes for one indulgent and supremely tasty autumn pasta dish. I definitely look forward to hearing how you like it, too . . .
