1 butternut squash (top skinny part only)

1.5 lbs lean ground beef

2 cups marinara sauce

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 cup cashews

1 TBS nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 cup water

3/4 cup spinach leaves

6 slices Follow Your Heart Provolone cheese


Instructions (noodles):

  • Begin by setting up a pot of water to boil.

  • Using only the top skinny part of the butternut squash, thinly slice outside peel off and stem.
    *If you do not have a mandolin slicer, carefully slice squash into long thin noodles, almost like shaving down the side.

  • Carefully place noodles into boiling water. Cook until al dente. Be careful, they break easily.

  • Drain and set aside.

Instructions (cashew cheese):

  • In a blender or food processor, combine cashews, basil, garlic powder, nutritional yeast and water.

  • Blend until thick, creamy "cheese" forms and set aside.

Instructions (sauce):

  • On medium high heat, cook minced garlic with ground beef until fully brown.

  • Add 1 3/4 cup marinara sauce and stir well. Set aside for assembly of lasagna.

Instructions (putting it all together):

  • Heat oven to 350.

  • Lightly spread 1/4 cup marinara sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

  • Place first layer of butternut noodles vertically across the entire bottom of the dish.

  • On top of the noodles, place half of the meat sauce mixture.

  • Next, spread cashew cheese on top of meat. This will kind of mix in with the meat and will only be a light layer of cheese.

  • Lay spinach over the top of the cashew cheese. If you want more spinach, don't hesitate with more. -Place another layer of butternut noodles all the way across the spinach layer.

  • Finally, spread remaining meat sauce on top of butternut noodles.

  • Bake for 10 minutes and then add cheese.
    **If you do not have a dairy sensitivity, feel free to use normal cheese for this part.

  • Bake until cheese is melted, cool and enjoy!
