    Awesome

    Jillian Kaergard from Schaumburg, IL

    I absolutely love this recipe for the fall. It had wonderful flavor and it was great the next day. I added more sauce than the recipe called for because I like my lasagna more saucy!

    Pumpkin Sausage Lasagna

    Linda Witherspoon from BALTIMORE, MD

    My family enjoyed this recipe very much and it was not hard to do.I also made the sauce and stuffed some jumbo shell to I found that if you don't cook the shell but stuff them first it come out so much nicer

    Ok--but you gotta try it!

    Clee Hues from KENOSHA, WI

    You may not think of pumpkin as part of most main dish cooking, but "you gotta try it." The flavors meld well with a subtleness that will surprise you--it is not dominated by the pumpkin. Squashes and tomato dishes are very popular in the Mediterranean and Latin cooking styles, and this simple addition will prove to you why. If you prefer not to cook with wine, you can leave it out, but the wine is a binder as the alcohol burns off, that really adds to this sauce.

    Pumpkin Lasagna-Magnifico!

    Shannan Williamson from FONTANA, CA

    I was at first wary of trying lasagna with pumpkin mixed in the sauce, but it was absolutely delicious. I used wheat rotini noodles instead of lasagna noodles and added extra veggies, such as grated zucchini. It was very good, and tasted even better the next day as left-overs for lunch. It goes very well with a nice tossed salad and crusty wheat baguette.
