Pumpkin Lasagna.

With the changing of the leaves, fall also brings yummy treats like pumpkin pie, apple crisp, and fall spiced lattes at coffee shops all over the country. But how about pumpkin lasagna? It may sound strange to some, but this fall twist on the Italian classic dish has made it into my permanent favorite recipe books. I came across the recipe (here ) when browsing numerous blogs for ideas on home decor. Needless to say, the pumpkin infused lasagna was the last thing I would expect to stumble across but I'm so happy I did! So,  a couple days ago on a particularly chilly afternoon, I lit tons of candles with spicy aromas and turned on the fire place, went to the kitchen and got to work. The finished product of the lasagna doesn't stray far from the picture above and the taste was even better. Extremely savory, with a hint of nutmeg. Each bite contained a different flavor than before. Some were emphasizing the spinach, onions, and mushrooms, and other bites were filled with the creaminess of the ricotta mixed with pumpkin and nutmeg. Definitely try this dish sometime between now and Thanksgiving. You'll be so glad you did.
