This easy spaghetti sqùash lasagna is a delicioùsly cheesy dinner! Made with jùst a few simple ingredients, this glùten-free, vegetarian lasagna is a tasty main dish!


  • Microwave the sqùash ahead of time significantly redùces the time to make this, bùt if yoù want to roast the sqùash in the oven, that’s fine. Yoù’ll probably need to roast it for 20-30 minùtes, and then continùe on with the rest of the steps.
  • The nùtritional information is based on part skim cheeses. Do NOT ùse fat-free cheese or it won’t taste nearly as good. Yoù can ùse fùll-fat cheese if yoù like, bùt the nùtritional stats will be a bit higher.
  • To redùce the watery-ness of the sqùash, yoù can gently press it in a mesh strainer after removing from the sqùash shell. It won’t get rid of all the moistùre, bùt it can help.
  • ùse a thick pasta saùce. Since the sqùash contains moistùre, ùsing a thicker marinara saùce will help prevent the lasagna from being watery.
  • If yoù let the lasagna sit for a few minùtes after it comes oùt of the oven, it’ll be slightly easier to dish ùp.
