* Optional



Combine egg, ricotta, spinach, mushrooms and zucchini in a large bowl.


Combine smushed and diced tomatoes and their juice, garlic and crushed red pepper (if using) in a medium bowl. *We did not have enough canned tomatoes (trying to cut back due to the nature of the acid of the tomatoes reacting with the can). So we placed a carton of cherry tomatoes in a large bowl and gently mushed them with a small bowl. High tech let me tell you.


Generously coat a 6-quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread 1 1/2 cups of the tomato mixture in the slow cooker. Arrange 5 noodles over the sauce, overlapping them slightly and breaking into pieces to cover as much of the sauce as possible. Spread half of the ricotta-vegetable mixture over the noodles and firmly pat down, then spoon on 1 1/2 cups sauce and sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella. Repeat the layering one more time, starting with noodles. Top with a third layer of noodles. Evenly spread the remaining tomato sauce over the noodles. Set aside the remaining 1 cup mozzarella in the refrigerator.


Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on High for 2 hours or on Low for 4 hours. Turn off the slow cooker, sprinkle the reserved mozzarella on the lasagna, cover and let stand for 10 minutes to melt the cheese.

I had to give slow cooker salsa a try, I could live on salsa and chips alone if I had too! And I love bringing salsa and chips to summer barbecues, everyone seems to go crazy for it. This recipe for slow cooker salsa makes about 2 quarts of salsa! Enough for a big crowd, or you could freeze the leftovers in plastic containers.

I am a bit of a picky eater when it comes to eating other peoples food, especially when it comes to ground beef. I hated ground beef as a child and the one thing that I really didn't like was chili, as an adult though I have come to like my own slow cooker chili. This is the recipe I follow. I add the 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs and the chopped onion to the meat as it is being browned.
