I especially like this comforting fall dish because it's vegetarian. Even friends who aren't big fans of pumpkin are surprised by this delectable lasagna! Canned pumpkin and no-cook noodles make it a cinch to prepare. —Tamara Huron, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"I wanted something for Thanksgiving that was different so I decided to try this recipe. I can't say I'm a huge fan of pumpkin but I like it okay. This was super easy to put together and I have to tell you that every bite got better! I don't use half and half so I used Cinnamon creamer instead--I thought that might add to the recipe. Gotta say I was impressed with this!"

"This was actually very good. The pumpkin was not overwhelming. Would add more mushrooms next time."

"What a Pleasing recipe . Its so nice to have a new Lasagna recipe to turn too. I down sized it to feed just Hubby and myself. Didn't change a thing. I did pre cook the noodles and I felt that the pumpkin puree was perfect for spreading. I even had enough left over to serve on the side. I did use more of all of the cheese's and also the mushroom mixture. Going to try to come up with a formula for switching out the Noodles for Shells * Perfect appetizer for the Holidays* Talk about Impressive *

"I'll stick with my old vegetarian lasagna recipe. This was a bit dry even though I didn't cook it as long as the recipe said. It's edible but not scrumptious."
