- Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

- Add tomato paste and sauté for an additional 2 minutes.
- Remove garlic from skin and place in the pan with onions.
- Add tomato and pumpkin purée to onions and garlic.
- Bring sauce to a boil, add kale and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes until kale softens.
- Line the bottom of an 8 ½ x 11 inch baking pan with sauce to avoid noodles from sticking.
- Line bottom of pan with 3 lasagne noodles. Cover with sauce and top with grated provolone cheese. Repeat for remaining layers ensuring you end with sauce on top.

- Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes and top is slightly golden.
