Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe

By Lisa Thomas, Member Services


Ingredients:

2 28 ounce cans of crushed tomatoes

3 garlic cloves (I love garlic and usually add more)

1 tsp. dried oregano

Salt

1 15 ounce container ricotta

½ cup grated Parmesan

16 oz grated part-skim mozzarella

12 lasagna noodles

16 ounce bag spinach

 

Instructions:

Step 1 – combine tomatoes, garlic, oregano and 1 tsp. salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan, and ¾ of mozzarella.cheesy lasagna

Step 2 – Spoon ¼ of tomato mixture into bottom of slow cooker. Top with a layer of noodles, breaking to fit if necessary. Sprinkle 1/3 of spinach over noodles. Spoon 1/3 of ricotta mixture over spinach. Top with ¼ of tomato mixture. Repeat with two more layers of noodles, spinach, ricotta mixture and tomatoes. Top with a layer of noodles and remaining mozzarella.

Step 3 – Cook on low heat until noodles are soft and lasagna is warmed through, 2-3 hours.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Feel free to add what you want. This is a vegetarian version but I’ve added cooked sausage, other veggies like sliced zucchini and mushroom, shredded carrot, you name it. Create your own layers!
  • Test for doneness by inserting a sharp paring knife into the noodles. It should pierce them easily.
  • Use regular lasagna noodles…not the no-boil variety.

 

Enjoy!
