Giada de Laurentiis’ baked pasta will leave dinner guests in awe. Creamy ricotta and mozzarella are rolled into lasagna sheets and sauced with pumpkin and cream, baked and then topped with fried sage leaves. It’s a cozy dish, perfect for colder weather.

This recipe from Giada saves you time with premade pumpkin ravioli. You’ll toast hazelnuts in the oven to bring out their flavor.
