Cauldron Baked Lasagna
1 lb. pkg. lasagna noodles
3 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 white onion
1 red bell pepper
2 lg. carrots
1 c. fresh green beans
1 c. frozen white corn
6-8 acorn squash (optional for baking)
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
4 Roma tomatoes
1 tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. coarse black pepper

This recipe makes lasagna for a 9 x 13 baking dish or 6 to 8 individual servings of lasagna baked in
acorn squash. Prepare lasagna noodles according to directions on package; drain and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375°. In a large stockpot, heat cream to a simmer. Add Parmesan cheese and
continue to simmer. Cook for 2 to 3 more minutes; remove from heat, mince garlic and add
garlic and salt to cream sauce. Peel and chop onion. Seed and dice bell pepper. Peel and thinly
slice carrots. Slice green beans into small pieces. Keep each vegetable separated for preparing
lasagna layers. If baking in acorn squash, slice off tops and remove seeds and stringy pulp from
each squash and discard.
Spread a thin layer of cream sauce in the bottom of a baking dish or in bottom of the acorn squash.
Place a layer of noodles, onions and frozen corn; top with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Add 2nd
layer of noodles, topped with bell peppers, cream sauce and cheese. Add 3rd layer of noodles,
carrots and green beans, cream sauce and cheese. Finish with a layer of noodles and top with
cream sauce and cheese. Rinse and slice tomatoes, and place as the top layer, then sprinkle with
sugar and pepper. Replace lid and line a 9 x 13 baking dish with acorn squash. Bake for 30 to
35 minutes. Slice green onions and garnish. Serve
