Recipe: Pumpkin Sage Lasagna

Well, October may be over but that doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to the pumpkin just yet.

I had made Giada’s pumpkin ravioli a few months back & fell in love so I scoured the web for a lasagna recipe.

I decided to go with the Taste Of Home magazine’s version. This was a magazine my aunt gave me as a gift when I started cooking in college. I knew I could trust them for their recipe & I was right. I love cheese and this exceptionally cheesy dish was just right. The mild cheeses, sweet pumpkin & savory sage were just the combo.

I just made a few changes to the original. I hope you enjoy.
