Recipe

This is a great meal to make when you are craving something comforting but don't want the hassle of hovering by the stove all day. In about fifteen minutes we assemble a quick veggie lasagna in the slow cooker and 4 hours later, magic. I usually use whatever vegetables I have in the house so feel free to mix up the zucchini and mushrooms listed in the recipe. Make sure to precook the vegetables to avoid ending up with a runny lasagna. A thicker marinara sauce can also help here if you have had trouble with similar recipes in the past.

Directions

  1. Add the vegetables, onion, and garlic to a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Microwave the vegetables for 2-4 minutes until just tender. Squeeze out excess moisture. This step is important or the lasagna will be very watery.
  3. Mix together the ricotta, egg, and basil. Stir in the veggies.
  4. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread about 1⁄2 cup sauce on the bottom. Cover with 1/3 of the lasagna noodles, breaking them up as needed. Then layer on 1/3 of the ricotta veggie mixture. Sprinkle on 1/3 of the mozzarella. Cover with 1/3 of remaining sauce. Repeat to create 3 layers.
  5. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 5-6 hours. Let rest 1 full hour before serving. This will help the lasagna set.
