Eating a traditional lasagna is an unequivocal delight; making one, however, can sometimes be the opposite for a novice cook. (So. Much. Time.) Thankfully, you don't need two-plus hours to make chef Adriana Urbina's vegan lasagna recipe, which she shows off in the latest episode of Well+Good's show Cook With Us.

This isn't just your basic lasagna. It's vegan (and Paleo, if that's your thing) and it ditches the pasta for this unexpected ingredient: butternut squash. "I love the sweetness of the squash and how it balances up all the flavors," Urbina says. Additionally, with this simple recipe, you can cut your cooking time in half. Instead of the traditional four layers, all you need are two so you can spend less time cooking and more time eating (because it's just that good).

These pecan pie bars use crescent rolls for a quick and easy dessert

  These pecan pie bars use crescent rolls for a quick and easy dessert Pecan pie bars: a golden brown sea of crushed pecans that sit atop a smooth filling and flaky crust. The bite-sized confection is ideal to serve as a holiday dessert, or to wrap up and gift to neighbors, friends and family. No matter how you choose to enjoy the tiny treats, this recipe - which was the grand prize winner of the 1973 Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest - breaks the process down into a few simple steps, with one secret weapon: crescent rolls.

While we can't reveal Urbina's secret weapon in her cooking arsenal (because you'll have to watch the video for that), I can tell you about the other health-promoting ingredients that Urbina uses to make her filling. She sautees onion, garlic, and leeks (we didn't lie when we said it was simple). The filling also includes cashews, which gives the filling its creamy consistency.
