Pumpkin Lentil Lasagna

Pumpkin Lasagna

…Pumpkin Lentil Lasagna…


Pumpkin Cashew Ricotta

2 cups of raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours

2 cups of pumpkin puree

1 clove garlic

1 lemon, juiced

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil


1 container of gluten-free lasagna (I love Capello’s)

1 jar of marinara sauce

1 cup cooked black lentils

8 oz shredded organic mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, in a high-speed blender add cashew ricotta ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add 1 tbsp at a time of water if necessary to reach desired consistency. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a lasagna pan spread a layer of tomato sauce, followed by noodles, pumpkin cashew ricotta, lentils, then sauce. Repeat. Top the lasagna with shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover lasagna with tin foil and bake for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.

    This is the best lasagna I’ve ever made. My husband (who can eat cheese) said it’s better than anything he’s had before. Thank you!

    Are there any substitutions for cashews you’d recommend? I’m allergic to tree nuts, but this looks too delicious to miss!

    Hello! This recipe looks great, and I plan on trying it out this weekend. One question for you. Are the lasagna noodles cooked or uncooked? Some recipes require you boil the noodles to al dente, some not. Thanks!

    • You can do it either way! If you like more cooked noodles, I would recommend boiling them for 3-4 minutes beforehand. If you like your noodles a little firmer, then I would recommend not cooking them. It is cooking for around 40 minutes, so not matter what you should have completely cooked noodles! It is more for preference.
