Butternut Squash Spinach Lasagna Rollups



The key to successful entertaining is being able to prepare as much in advance as possible, so when your guests arrive, you are relaxed, calm and able to greet them without being trapped in the kitchen. When searching for an interesting main dish for my book club, I thought this recipe from my favorite site for delicious, healthy food (Skinnytaste) would be a perfect choice for a meal to serve twelve, in late November. It fit all my criteria; I could prepare it in advance, it would be easy to pop in the oven and serve and the butternut squash was a great seasonal ingredient.

My book club friends raved about this dish and I have to agree - it was delicious. The butternut squash that topped the lasagna rolls, with the addition of shallots, garlic and parmesan cheese had a wonderful rich flavor. I will be honest - this was a time consuming dish, but very worth the effort for any special occasion. And, you will receive compliments, as I did, for a dish your company will eat with pleasure - one of the joys of entertaining in your home.

Happy Tuesday!
