How to make it
- In a large pot, bring heavily salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook 5 minutes. They will still be firm. Remove from water, spread on cookie sheets in a single layer and allow to cool.
- Brown beef in a large skillet, breaking up with a wooden spoon into crumbles.
- Stir in crushed tomatoes, red wine, roasted red peppers and spices. Simmer 10 minutes, then stir in pumpkin puree.
- Reduce heat to low and keep warm.
- In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, spinach, milk and remaining spices. Stir until smooth.
- Spread a thin layer of the tomato sauce on the bottom of a greased 9x13” baking dish.
- Top with a layer of lasagne noodles, overlapping slightly.
- Add a thin layer of the cheese mixture, followed by a thick layer of sauce.
- Top with noodles, then layer all remaining cheese mixture but ¼ cup on top.
- Top directly with the final layer of noodles.
- Combine remaining ricotta and tomato sauces in the skillet. Spread over the top layer of noodles.
- Combine the grated Mozzarella and Asiago in a bowl, sprinkle over sauce.
- Cover with tin foil and refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Uncover the lasagne and bake 45 minutes, tenting with foil if cheese starts browning too much.
