These butternut squash lasagna roll ups are stuffed with chicken and spinach and covered in a creamy, cheesy butternut sauce.
There are some days you want a quick dinner. Then, there are some days where spending a couple hours in the kitchen, chopping, processing, sauteing and baking sounds like the perfect thing. I find that as the weather gets cooler with breeze blowing in through the kitchen window as I stand in my little nook between my sink and stove, I crave those longer kitchen days a little more often.
These butternut squash lasagna roll ups are just the thing for those kind of days.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know where this recipe was taking me when I set out in the beginning. I had a butternut squash sitting on my counter for a couple of weeks, my first “fall” squash purchase when I got home from Europe. I had half a box of lasagna noodles I wanted to use up and leftover rotisserie chicken.
About 30 minutes later, I found myself knee deep in the middle of this.
As far as “winging” it goes, this has to be one of the better results. The butternut squash plays two roles; a creamy filling with the chicken and spinach and a thinner, cheesy sauce on top of the whole wheat noodles.
