It’s time to break out the sweaters and boots, turn on the Steelers and Seahawks games, and welcome fall!
Layered Pumpkin Lasagna Dessert
“Lasagna made with pumpkin? I’ve never heard of it before”, but it certainly piques my interest! Before taking the first mouthful, my hubby stated, “But let’s not waste time discussing.”
And the initial taste was immediately followed by a second, and then a third… until all you could hear, “Can you give me another little piece?” after the third bite.
My layered pumpkin lasagna dessert was a huge hit, and its chocolate sibling now has a worthy heir thanks to its accomplishment!
Layered Pumpkin Lasagna Dessert Recipe
I began with the outside layer! Although the crust of my chocolate lasagna was made using Oreos, I do not believe that a pumpkin filling would have gone well with that combination.
In such case, I will make my pumpkin lasagna with a crust that is baked and has butter, walnuts, and flour in it. Pecans were another possibility, but given that I never seem to have enough walnuts on hand, selecting walnuts was the better option.
Because cream cheese and whipped cream are an absolute must for the second layer of any dessert, I had no choice but to use them. After that, I moved on to the third layer of my confection.
And there, just like a small piece of heaven, a mixture of vanilla pudding and pumpkin puree is waiting for us there. The gorgeous color was really stunning, and the aroma of pumpkin had the promise of a delectable feast in store.
The only thing that remained to be done was to make these three layers of pumpkin lasagna a little sweeter by adding a little more whipped cream, and then we could top it with chopped walnuts.
After that, our little layered pumpkin lasagna dessert was finished and ready to be chilled in the refrigerator.
And then, following an hour of resting at room temperature, my brand-new Pumpkin Lasagna was sitting there, waiting in a more official capacity to see who would take the first bite of a brand-new slice.
