Chicken, butternut squash and feta lasagne
Delicious family meal which is perfect for cool Autumnal evenings.

1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced
3 tbsp olive oil
200g feta cheese
200g lasagne sheets
200g grated mozzarella cheese
2 chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 garlic clove, crushed
Tomato sauce
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp white wine

Cheese sauce
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp plain flour
340ml milk
70g grated mature white cheddar

Preheat oven to 190°C/375°C/Gas 5.

Spread the diced butternut evenly in a shallow roasting dish and toss with a enough olive oil to coat.

Roast until tender, about 20 minutes.

Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan, add the crushed garlic and the chicken. Cook until just done, then season with salt and pepper.

Remove from the pan, set aside and keep warm.

Add a little more olive oil to the same pan, then fry the onion and garlic until onions are translucent.

Add the tinned tomatoes, tomato paste and white wine, cook until sauce reduces and thickens slightly. Stir in the cooked chicken, set aside and keep warm.

In a clean saucepan, melt the butter for the cheese sauce. When melted, add the flour and whisk until all the butter has been absorbed. Cook for a minute or 2, then over a low heat gradually add the milk, whisking after each addition to make sure there are no lumps. Stir in the grated cheddar and stir until cheddar has melted.

Lightly grease a large rectangular oven-proof dish. Cover the base with lasagne sheets, then top with a layer of the tomato and chicken mix, crumbled feta cheese, roasted butternut squash and cheese sauce. Repeat these layers, ending with cheese sauce on top.

Top with grated mozzarella and bake at 180°C/350°F/Gas 6 until golden, about 30 minutes.
