Tasty Tips:

  • To evenly spread the thick, sticky pumpkin and ricotta mixtures without making a mess, drop even spoonfuls over the previous layer; use a fork or the back of a spoon to press down and gently distribute the fillings from edge to edge.
  • If your pan won't accommodate all the lasagna noodles in the package, save some for another use.
