Pumpkin Lasagna, as it is made in this recipe rendition, may surprise you. It is not the savory dish, which is fabulous, but a lovely layered dessert that is full of surprises. Make this four-layered dessert when you want to serve something really special at a fall celebration. The bottom layer is toasted walnut blended with flour and butter. Toasted walnuts are quite different in flavor than when the walnuts are raw. Toasting removes the slightly bitter flavor walnuts often carry and gives them a slightly drier and also nuttier and deeper flavor. Do not skip this step as it has terrific flavor implications for this dessert. The middle flavor is made of cream cheese, which is always dee-lish. That layer is topped with a double hit of pumpkin—enough to make people sit up and take notice of this lovely dish. The whole thing is topped with whipped topping (make it real cream for best results) blended with more nuts (again, make sure to toast the walnuts).
This is a great recipe, quick and easy to make, yielding a visually stunning series of layers. Every one will be in awe at your skill in the kitchen when you make this dessert. Let aspiring cooks help with toasting the walnuts so they can learn to recognize the readiness of the nuts just by their smell, whipping the cream and other simple tasks. This cake should be well chilled for best flavor, so let it sit in the fridge for several hours or even over night before you set it out.
When you do set this dish out, if you have made it in a metal pan, be sure to cut some pieces so the layers can be admired. No use doing all that work if no one appreciates your culinary efforts and expertise! Enjoy this pumpkin lasagna when there are plenty of people to share this sumptuous dessert with you and your family.
