Mediterranean Chicken & Butternut Squash Lasagne

This clean eating butternut squash lasagne is made using sheets of butternut squash in place of pasta sheets. The vegetables and chicken are layered up in a dish, which is sealed in foil and slow roasted. The result is an amazingly delicious lasagne, with meltingly soft vegetables, with a rich gluten-free and dairy-free gravy. 

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC and roast the peppers for 20 minutes until soft and just starting to blacken at the edges.
  2. While the peppers are roasting, make the white sauce. Add the olive oil to a saucepan and put the pan over a low heat. Stir the brown rice flour into the oil and mix well.
  3. Slowly pour the milk into the pan, stirring constantly with a balloon whisk to incorporate the milk into the roux. When all of the milk has been stirred in, turn the heat up under the pan and bring the mix to a boil, whisking constantly. When the sauce is bubbling and thickened, add the parsley, pepper and salt, and set the sauce to one side.
  4. Next brown the chicken fillets in a frying pan for a few minutes, for just long enough to turn the fillets white on the outside. Set these to one side.
  5. Assemble the lasagne: Lightly grease a non-stick baking dish. Cover the base of the dish with a layer of butternut squash lasagne. Spread half of the white sauce over the layer of lasagne.
  6. Cover the butternut with a layer of roasted red peppers (use all of the pepper), then top the peppers with another layer of butternut squash. Spread the rest of the sauce over the squash.
  7. Spread the chicken fillets out in a single layer over the butternut squash, then top with a final layer of squash.
  8. Cover the dish with foil,  sealing tightly at the edges, then place the dish in the oven and roast for 1 hour.
  9. Allow the lasagne to sit for 15 minutes before dishing up.
