In my morning post, I briefly mentioned that we had lasagna for dinner last night. One good thing about making lasagna for only two people?
I was pumped to dig into our leftover lasagna around lunchtime today.
It doesn’t look like typical lasagna does it?
Well, that’s because there was a little less marinara sauce and a lot more butternut squash!
(And yes, it basically fell apart as I was trying to plate it. Leftovers will do that to ya!)
I made the lasagna last night by following a recipe for winter squash lasagna that I tore out of Woman’s Day magazine at the gym last week.
I followed the recipe almost exactly, only I used whole wheat lasagna noodles and substituted frozen spinach for fresh spinach.
(I made sure to drain the water out of the frozen spinach before adding it to the ricotta and mozzarella mixture because Ryan and I have neglected to do so in the past and were left with super watery lasagna.)
One thing I loved about this lasagna? The cheese to noodle ratio! Sure the noodles were good, but I love how there was so much ricotta cheese in the recipe that you could barely see the noodles underneath all the cheesy glory. That’s my kind of lasagna!
Both Ryan and I said we’d gladly make it again and it was ready in less than 45 minutes which is pretty great for homemade lasagna!

And now for some fun!
I am going to a cookie exchange party on Saturday night and REALLY want to bring some fun and delicious cookies to share.
I know many of you out there are always in the market for new, yummy cookie recipes (especially around the holidays) and I thought a holiday cookie recipe link up might be fun!
If you have a cookie (or bar) recipe that you absolutely love and think needs to be shared, please link to it or share it in the comments section below.
I’m hoping to follow one of your recipes for this weekend’s party!
Here is my contribution to the link up:
Not exactly a cookie recipe I know, but they’re always a hit anytime I bring them to a cookie exchange! People love their Oreos!
