1 cup (250mL) whipping cream
Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish, optional

Grease 2 (13x9-inch or 33x23-inch) shallow baking pans.

Quarter squash and scrape out seeds and fibers. Peel and cut flesh
into 1/2 inch ((1-cm) cubes (about 9 cups or 2.25 L). In a large
bowl, toss squash with oil until well coated; spread in one layer
in pans. Bake at 450F (230 C) for 10 minutes. Sprinkle each pan
of squash with 1/8 teaspoon (0.5mL) salt and stir. Continue baking
for an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until tender.

While squash is roasting, put milk and rosemary in a large saucepan;
bring to a simmer. Cook milk mixture over low heat for 10 minutes;
pour through sieve into large heatproof 4-cup (1 L) measuring cup.

In a large heavy saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat. Add
garlic and saute for about 5 minutes or until tender, stirring
frequently. Stir in flour and cook for 3 minutes, stirring
constantly. Remove pan from heat and add milk mixture in a stream,
whisking constantly. Return saucepan to heat and bring to simmer;
cook for 10 minutes or until thickened, whisking frequently. Remove

1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) pepper.

Reduce oven temperature to 375F (190C)

Pour 1 cup (250 mL) sauce into a greased (13x9-inch or 33x23cm)
baking dish (sauce will not cover bottom completely; cover with 4
lasagna noodles, cutting to fit. (There will be about 1/2-inch or
1 cm) space between noodles and edge of pan) Spread half of
remaining sauce over noodles and sprinkle with 1/2 cup (125 mL)
parmesan cheese. Repeat layering - 4 noodles, remaining sauce and
1/2 cup (125mL) parmesan cheese; top with remaining 4 noodles.

In bowl, beat whipping cream with 1/4 teaspoon (1mL) salt until
soft peaks form; spread evenly over lasagna, making sure noodles
are completely covered. Sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese over
