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.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
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.
