pumpkin lasagna

My friend Emily sent me this pumpkin lasagna recipe and insured me it was awesome.  I was a little skeptical – I’m not the hugest pumpkin fan, and definitely not as much about savory pumpkin – but we gave it a try anyway while my mom was here after Kate’s birth.  It was awesome and we all really enjoyed it!  I’d definitely recommend making this – we will be again for sure!

Sorry, no picture, but imagine white lasagana delicious-ness.

  1. YUM! I love pumpkin in dishes like this. We’re keeping Christmas low-key this year since my MIL is having hip surgery, and I might do a few lasagna varieties with salad. I’ll be looking at this.
