    1 1/2  pounds        butternut squash -- peeled/thinly sliced
 
 1.  In a large pot of boiling water, cook noodles until barely tender (8 minutes
for dried, 1 minute for fresh).  Drain and rinse under cold water.  Spread the
noodles on clean kitchen towels, cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
 
 2.  In a small bowl, combine sun-dried tomatoes and dried porcini mushrooms.  Add
1 cup boiling water, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  Lift out the tomatoes &
mushrooms and chop.  Strain the soaking liquid through a fine sieve and set
aside.
 
 3.  In a saucepan, heat 1 cup of the milk over medium heat until steaming. 
Meanwhile, put 3 tablespoons of flour in a small bowl and gradually whisk in the
remaining 1/3 cup of milk until smooth; whisk into the hot milk and stir
constantly  over the heat until the sauce comes to a simmer and thickens. 
Continue cooking and stirring for 1 minute.  Remove from heat.	 Whisk in the
cream cheese, then 2/3 cup of the spaghetti sauce and the vinegar.  Searson with
salt and pepper.  Set aside.
 
 4.  In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add onions,
carrots and garlic and saute until soft, about 2 minutes.  Add fresh mushrooms,
rosemary, and the reserved tomatoes and porcini; cook until the fresh mushrooms
are just wilted, about 2 minutes longer.  Stir in the remaining 1 teaspoon of
flour.	Add the reserved soalking liquid and the remaining 1/3 cup of spaghetti
sauce.	Cook until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute.  Remove from heat,
season with salt and pepper.
 
 5.  Preheat oven to 400 F.  Lightly spray a 9 x 13 in baking sheet with cooking
spray or oil.
 
 6.  Smear the botom of the prepared dish with 1/2 cup of the sauce.  Line bottom

with 2 tablespoons parmesan.  Add 2nd layer of noodles, then the squash (sprinkle
with salt and pepper) and another 1/2 cup of the sauce.  Add 3rd noodle layer,
remaining mushroom mixure and 2 tablespoons of parmesan.  Top with remaining
noodles and sauce, then remaining parmesan.
 
 7.  Lightly oil a large piece of aluminum foil or coat it with cooking spray, and
use it to tighly cover the baking dish.  Bake the lasagne for 30 minutes, uncover
and bake for additional 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly brown and bubbing.  Let
