  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 yellow summer squash, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 green zucchini squash, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • pumpkin Parmesan sauce (recipe to follow)
  • 1 lb fresh lasagna sheets, cooked until almost al dente, or dried lasagna noodles, cooked until al dente
  • 1 lb Italian fontina cheese, shredded
  • Pumpkin Parmesan Sauce Ingredients
  • 1 olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp chopped shallot (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 cup minced garlic
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 1 oz chicken broth

  3. While noodles are cooking, start making the sauce: Heat olive oil in a skillet and stir in onions and shallots. Saute until translucent. Stir in minced garlic and saute for another minute.
  4. Add pumpkin, broth, cream, vinegar, and spices to the onion/shallots/garlic mixture in the skillet. Simmer on low approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Slowly stir 1/3 of the cheese into the sauce. When that cheese has been absorbed, repeat with another 1/3 of the cheese, and then repeat again with the last 1/3. Stir in the chopped fresh sage.

    If the sauce is too thick, you can thin with pasta water from the lasagna.
  6. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with foil.
  7. In a bowl, stir the ricotta, sage, 3 tablespoons of the parsley, and the garlic together. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and put aside.

  9. In a large bowl, toss the green and yellow squash with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange in a single layer on the foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven around 15 minutes, or until tender and slightly brown.
  10. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned. transfer to a bowl and add the squashes. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  11. Spread 1/2 cup of the pumpkin parmesan sauce on the bottom, and arrange a layer of lasagna over that. You may need to tear them to fit. Spread 1/2 cup ricotta mixure on the lasagna sheets and put 1 cup of the vegetable mixture on top. Spread 1/2 cup of the sauce over the vegetables and sprinkle 1 cup of the fontina on top. Repeat this pattern 3 more times, leaving out the sauce and fontina on the last layer. Top with the remaining lasagna sheets, sauce and fontina.
