Paleo Nick’s Butternut Squash Lasagna
- 4 pounds butternut squash (shaft portion of approximately two squash), sliced to ¼” thickness
- 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
- 15 oz. diced tomatoes
- 2 cups onions, diced
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 1 pound ground beef
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
- 8 cloves garlic, minced
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- Red Chile, to taste
- Prepare a meat sauce by heating an 8 quart stock pot over medium-high heat.
- Add the olive oil and garlic and stir until garlic is toasted, then add the onions.
- Season the beef with kosher salt and pepper, then push the onions and garlic to one side of the pan and place the beef, seasoned side down, in the other half of the pan.
- Season the top side of the beef with salt and pepper and add the Italian sausage to the pan. Break up beef and sausage into large chunks and fold the onions and garlic into the meat.
- Cook for approximately 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the meats are about 85% cooked, add the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce and stir to incorporate. Bring to a simmer.
- While the sauce is heating up, prepare your basil leaves by stacking them, rolling them and slicing into a chiffonade.
- Once meat sauce reaches a simmer, cut the heat and fold in the basil. Season one last time with salt and pepper keeping in mind that the sauce needs to be strong flavored because the squash is unseasoned.
- Add ground red chile if you prefer a bit of spice.
- To assemble the lasagne: oil the bottom of a 9” x 13” pan and add two cups of meat sauce.
- Spread sauce into a uniform layer, then top it with a layer of the sliced butternut squash.
- Add 2-3 cups of meat sauce, and then another layer of butternut squash. This time, alternate the direction of the squash “noodles”.
- Repeat steps one more time so that you have 3 layers of meat sauce and noodles. Then, top the lasagne with the remaining meat sauce.
- Place lasagne pan on a foil lined sheet pan and place in a preheated 375° oven for approximately 90 minutes, or until a butter knife easily inserts into all areas of the lasagne.
- Remove from oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
- Portion out into 8, 3-block portions and refrigerate for up to one week or freeze for up to 6 months. Buon Appetito!
