12 sheets dried ruffle-edged lasagna noodles
1 lb. whole milk ricotta cheese
1 Tbsp. julienned fresh sage
c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
tsp. minced garlic
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 yellow summer squash, cut into rounds " thick
2 zucchini, cut into rounds " thick
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 jar (24 oz.) pumpkin Parmesan pasta sauce
1 lb. Italian Fontina cheese, shredded

Preheat an oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Cook lasagna noodles until al dente. In a bowl, stir together the ricotta, sage, 3 Tbsp. of the parsley, the garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a large bowl, toss the yellow squash and zucchini with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and roast until tender and lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in an oval Dutch oven over medium heat, warm the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and add the yellow squash and zucchini. Reduce the oven temperature to 400. Spread c. pasta sauce in an even layer on the bottom of the Dutch oven. Arrange a single layer of lasagna noodles on top, tearing them as needed to fit. Spread c. ricotta mixture on the noodles and scatter 1 c. of the vegetable mixture on top. Spread c. pasta sauce over the vegetables and sprinkle 1 c. fontina on top. Layer the noodles, ricotta, vegetables, sauce, and fontina 3 more times, omitting the sauce and fontina on the last layer. Top with the remaining noodles, sauce, and fontina. Bake until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted and browned, 45 to 50 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1 Tbsp. parsley on top. Let the lasagna rest for 15 minutes before serving. Serves 8 to 10.
