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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • Dash pepper
  • 9 no-cook lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

In a small skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt in oil until tender; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the pumpkin, cream, sage, pepper and remaining salt.
Spread 1/2 cup pumpkin sauce in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with three noodles (noodles will overlap slightly). Spread 1/2 cup pumpkin sauce to edges of noodles. Top with half of mushroom mixture, 1/2 cup ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles and sauce.
Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked lasagna. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°.
Yield: 6 servings.

"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!"

"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."
