preparation

e581d8ecfcc9a45c4df4492a1e77ca355993590f.jpg 1.  Combine egg, ricotta, spinach, mushrooms and zucchini in a large bowl.

2.  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.

3.  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.

4.  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.
