By Cézanne Youmazzo – Fitness Director and Personal Trainer

Fall is here! This is one of my favorite Low fat, Low Calorie cool weather recipes. This dish is so easy to make and a favorite of family, friends and clients.

Ingredients:

  • One medium sized Butternut Squash, (Preferably one with a long neck)
  • One package of lean Turkey burger meat or Beyond plant based meat for vegetarians
  • One large jar of RAO’s Marinara or if you like a little spice, use the RAO’S Arribiata sauce (You can always make your own sauce as well)
  • 1 cup of Mozzarella Cheese or vegan Cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Peel and slice your Butternut Squash as thin as possible, I use a mandolin to slice mine.
  3. Put the Butternut Squash In a microwave safe dish or bowl with 3 tablespoons of water, Microwave on high for 8 minutes. When it is done drain off the excess water.
  4. Brown your meat, drain off the excess fat  and add sauce
  5. In a large baking pan layer the bottom with butternut squash, add a layer of the meat and sauce, sprinkle mozzarella and parmesan, then add another layer of all ingredients.
  6. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes
