Health-Bent 'Paleo Lasagna"
I follow their recipes almost to the T, except I used Grass-Fed ground beef instead of Italian Sausage since it is what I had on hand and used a marinara sauce that was Paleo that I found in the grocery store. I forgot which one it is, but just look at the ingredients and make sure sugar isn't one of them!

I didn't feel like bringing out a food processor, hence why I just got pasta sauce from the store and it was SO much faster, but making your own like the website says probably would taste awesome also since its fresh!
After I did my prep and browned my meat, which probably took about 30min I started to assemble the 'lasagna.' Now it does take me a little longer than those expert cooks out there as to chop an onion took me forever because my eyes kept watering. I hate cutting onions, I wish someone could always do that for me.
So this is how it went...little sauce, butternut squash pieces to cover the whole bottom of the 9x9 pan, then a layer of ground beef mixture followed by sauce, then repeated with the butternut squash pieces, beef, sauce. Simple! It only took me about 5min to put that together. Now that is more like it. Popped it into a preheated 400 degree oven for about 35min and checked until the top was bubbly.
So all in all, I give this recipe 5 stars in being tasty and super easy! You can make this for sure and don't be afraid to add whatever you want into the ground beef. The first time I made this my boyfriend and I ate the whole 9x9 serving and I made it for a bunch of crossfitters with high remarks also! Leftovers were great the next day too, so I recommend making extra! Give it a try and let me know what you think too! YUM :-)
