Enjoy the flavors of fall with Fancy Apron Cooking’s butternut squash lasagna recipe


  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1/4 cup pinot grigio
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cut off the top of a butternut squash. Discard the bottom of the bulb. Peel the outside with a vegetable peeler. Use a mandolin to slice the squash into 1/8” slices.
  3. Lay butternut squash slices onto two baking sheets. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake the squash for 15 minutes.
  4. While the butternut squash cooks, heat a pan or skillet on medium-high. Brown the sausage and drain the fat. Add 1/4 cup wine and stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add tomato sauce to the sausage and cover. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Once the sauce and butternut squash are cooked, prepare your baking dish. Start with a layer of tomato sauce at the bottom. Then layer the squash, meat sauce, provolone cheese, and so on for three layers. Top with parmesan cheese. 
  7. Bake assembled lasagna for 20 minutes.
  8. Take out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
