Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees to begin. Put the pumpkin puree in a sieve over a bowl and allow it to drain. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Cook the onion in the pot of oil for 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes before adding the wine. When the wine is reduced by half, pour in the tomato sauce and herbs. Simmer the pot over medium-low heat. Season with salt and pepper, lower the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.

In a separate large pot, boil water and cook the lasagna noodles for 10 minutes. Drain the noodles and toss with the rest of the oil. In a bowl, mix the drained pumpkin puree with the egg. Season the bowl with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese. Then assemble the lasagna by pouring a layer of sauce into a baking dish. Top with a layer of noodles and then spread a layer of half of the pumpkin filling. Top with half of the cheese mixture, chicken, and more sauce. Repeat the layers and then end with a layer of noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake for 40 minutes.
