Paleo Beef Butternut Lasagna

Wowza!  Sometimes I even amaze myself with certain recipes.  Folks you are gonna love this one; kept it as simple as possible.  Okay full disclosure I cheated with Provolone cheese but you can substitute Almond/Cashew/Other Paleo Cheese instead.  And try to get the oblong shaped Butternut not the peanut shape as it'll cut better.  

Butternut Squash 3 cups peeled/sliced in very thin circles
Ground Beef 3 lbs grassfed
Tomatoes 2 cup crushed 
Pepper 1 cup diced any color
Onion 1 medium diced
Garlic 2 cloves diced 
Tomato Paste 2 tablespoons 
Olive Oil 1 tablespoon 
Basil 1 tablespoon dried
Parsley 1 tablespoon 
Sea Salt/Pepper
Smoked Provolone 16 slices

Brown the Ground Beef in a skillet.  Then add the Peppers, Onion, Garlic and continue to cook until Vegtables are translucent.  Add the Tomatoes, Paste, and Spices.  Cook for about 5 more minutes until all the flavors marry.  Set Beef Mixure aside.  Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish with Olive Oil.  Line the bottom with the Butternut Squash circles.  Next layer the Beef and then the Provolone Cheese and repeat all three layers once more.  Bake covered with foil for 35-40 minutes until bubbly golden delicious magic happens!
