There are certain combinations that are just non-negotiable: milk and cookies, spaghetti and meatballs, marshmallows and hot cocoa … and pumpkin and sage.

When I first saw the recipe on UCLA alumna Casey Ditty’s food blog, Snip of Mint, among other winning recipes like chocolate rosemary ice cream and mozzarella and pesto dinner rolls, I knew this lasagna would also be a surefire win.

One bite of this delightfully unique lasagna will be enough to convince you. It’s a great variation of the traditional fall pumpkin line-up.  (more…)
