Butternut Squash, Spinach and Feta Lasagne

Pro Points: 8
Servings: 2
Cooking Time: 30 mins


450 g Butternut Squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into 1cm cubes   
4 sprays Cooking Spray, Calorie Controlled   
150 g Tomatoes, Cherry, halved   
225 g Spinach, washed   
3 sheets Lasagne Sheet, dried, 20 x 15cm, cut in half   
2 tablespoons (level) Pesto Sauce   
75 g Cheese, Feta, light   
1 pinch Salt   
1/2 teaspoons (ground) Pepper, Black (Whole, Cracked or Ground)   
1 tablespoons Basil, fresh, to garnish   


Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200°C/fan oven 180°C.

Put the butternut squash into a roasting pan and spray with the cooking spray, tossing to coat lightly. Roast for 20 minutes, or until the squash is just tender, then add the tomatoes and roast for 5 more minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the spinach in a small amount of water for 2–3 minutes, until the leaves have wilted. Drain well, squeezing out the excess moisture with the back of a spoon. At the same time, bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the lasagne and cook for 3–4 minutes.

Remove the squash and tomatoes from the oven and stir the pesto sauce through them.

Drain the lasagne sheets well, and then layer them on to two warmed plates with the squash mixture and spinach. Sprinkle the feta cheese on top, drizzle with any remaining roasting juices, then serve, garnished with basil leaves.

This meal was very different to what I normally cook but it's good to change things up a little. If I made it again I would use more spinach and tomatoes and a little less squash as I found it a little sweet.
