Serves 8

1 pound Lasagne, uncooked

Preheat oven to 350-o F. Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add onion, squash and carrots. Cook the vegetables over low heat until very soft. Stir in flour with a wooden spoon. Gradually stir in the milk until the mixture is smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir in raisins, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside 1 cup.

In a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking dish, spread a little of the vegetable sauce over the bottom and cover with lasagne. Sprinkle provolone over lasagne and add more vegetable sauce. Continue to layer sauce, provolone and lasagne, ending with a layer of sauce. Sprinkle top with Parmesan and nuts. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes until nicely browned and heated through.
