Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna Recipe – 6 Points +

Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna

Lasagna has always been one of my favorite comfort food recipes, so I was excited to experiment with a fall lasagna recipe that I had been dreaming/salivating over for months. My Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna was definitely a hit and it captured all the seasonal flavors I was craving. By roasting the butternut squash, it gets nicely caramelized, which adds a wonderful flavor. So while this step does add some extra time to the preparation, it is absolutely worth it. I also prefer to leave the squash kinda chunky when I mash it, because I like the texture. But if you’d rather puree it or make it smoother, by all means, do so! You just may need to add a bit more broth to thin it out. Here’s a shot of the inside of mine:

Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Recipe – 8 Points +

Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna

Spinach and mushroom lasagna is one of absolute favorite dishes. It’s loaded with good for you ingredients and is so cheesy and creamy. But aside from the fact that this dish is made with healthy vegetables, most traditional Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Recipes can be loaded with extra fat, calories and carbs. So I played around with the ingredients, and created my own take on this popular vegetarian lasagna. My healthier, lower calorie version is nothing short of delicious and boasts just 8 Points + for a very nicely sized serving. It still has all the creamy, cheesy goodness that you’d expect, but with a lot less of the fat and calories. Using whole wheat lasagna noodles also helped to add in additional protein and fiber, so this ends up being one pretty filling meal. The bechamel sauce is key in this Weight Watchers lasagna recipe, so make sure to get the texture just right. Start by adding in the milk, and then very, very GRADUALLY add in the broth. You may not need any, or you may need it all. But you just don’t want the sauce too thin, or too thick. If it’s too thin, just whisk in a little extra flour. This dish does take some extra effort, I know, but it is soooooo worth it. Enjoy!

Noodle-Free Lasagna Recipe – 6 Points +

Noodle-Free Lasagna

I got rid of the noddles in this Noodle-Free Lasagna Recipe, and used grilled zucchini and Portabella mushrooms instead, and it was a HUGE hit! The lasagna tasted amazing and the noodles weren’t missed a bit. The key was to still use good mozzarella cheese (not fat free) and use real ground beef instead of ground turkey. This helps to keep all of the amazing flavors of a traditional lasagna that we all love. But using the grilled vegetables instead of noodles helped to cut down on a lot of the calories and carbohydrates while adding additional fiber and protein. It’s important to note that salting and grilling the zucchini and mushrooms is a must-do…this helps to eliminate much of the water from the vegetables (and also adds a wonderful flavor!). If you don’t salt and grill the veggies beforehand, the lasagna will be very, very watery. So don’t skip that step! This Noodle Free Lasagna was seriously SO good, my husband even stated that we should never use noodles again when making lasagna. Each nicely sized serving is just 6 Points +, making it a fantastic idea for a Weight Watchers lasagna recipe that won’t use up a lot of your daily Points. Enjoy!
