  3. In a 9 x 13 casserole dish, layer half of the potatoes on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle 1 cup of the spinach or kale over potatoes. Blend the ricotta and eggs together and use half of this mixture to layer on top of the spinach. Layer next with 1 1/2 cup of the pumpkin sauce.

Add pumpkin, broth, cream, vinegar and spices to the onion, shallots, garlic mixture. Stir to blend and simmer on low for 5 minutes. Gradually stir in 1/3 of the cheese to the sauce until blended.
