Reserving half of each ingredient for a second layer, layer butternut squash slices, slightly overlapping each piece, in the bottom of the dish, followed by a layer of red onion, a layer of spinach, a layer of mozzarella, and a layer of cream mixture.

Sprinkle with Black Garlic Salt to taste. Serve warm.
