  • Spread 1 cup of the sauce mixture in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Place 3 noodles over the sauce, breaking them as needed to fit in one layer. Spread another 1 cup sauce over the pasta. Layer on one-third of the vegetable mixture, 3 more noodles, and 1 cup sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Continue layering one-third of the vegetables, 1 cup sauce, 1/2 cup mozzarella, and the remaining noodles. Top with a final layer of the remaining vegetables, the remaining sauce, and the remaining 1 cup mozzarella.

  • Cover and cook on Low for 5 hours.

  • Turn off and unplug the slow cooker. Let the lasagna stand, covered, for 1 hour (see Tip). Serve topped with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan and basil.

Tips

Tip: To prevent condensation building up on the underside of the lid during the 1-hour rest time, place a paper towel under the lid during the rest time.

Equipment: 6-qt. slow cooker

Really easy & good! My family who likes meat kind of missed the meat a bit but I liked the veggie flavor. I ended up cooking a bit less than the 5 & 1 hours. Put on 8 hour low setting for first 3-4 hrs. Read More

It is considered vegetarian but not vegan. A good sub in would be vegan cheese for the mozzarella and nutritional yeast for the parm. Read More

Would this be considered "vegetarian" considering it contains Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese? If not what would be a good substitute? Read More
