Description

Using a slow cooker to make this vegetarian lasagna truly makes it a one-pot meal—and you never have to turn on the oven!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Part-skim Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, Divided
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 jar (28 Oz. Size) Marinara Sauce
  • 7 whole Uncooked Lasagna Noodles
  • 2 cups Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1 whole Small Or Medium Zucchini, Sliced

Preparation

Spray the inside of a 3-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, parsley and several grinds of black pepper. Set aside.

Spread 1/4 of the marinara sauce in the bottom of the crock. Place 1 1/2 to 2 lasagna noodles on top, breaking into pieces as needed to make them fit. Spread with 1/2 of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with half of the vegetables, another 1/4 of the sauce and 2 more lasagna noodles. Repeat this layer, ending with the last of the noodles and topping with the remaining 1/4 of the sauce.

Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours, until noodles and vegetables are cooked through. Turn off heat. Uncover and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese on top; recover and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Recipe adapted quite a bit from Betty Crocker.

Tried this over the weekend, I made it in a very small 2 quart crock pot and it turned out great and took about 3 minutes to assemple and was perfectly cooked and even kind of brown on the sides after 3 hrs on high.
