I like with how tedious lasagna can become, especially when you make your own sauce, that this lasagna does not have that daunting, time consuming nature. I think this recipe does need some jazzing up with spices. I added a whole onion to the tomato mixture, along with basically a homemade italian spices blend. I added some spice to the veggie mixture as well. I suppose if it needs anything, I would do some more spice tweaking. I could see this being quite bland as is. It is a good recipe and did not take much hands on time at all.
Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Lasagna
From EatingWell: November/December 2011
Sure, the slow cooker’s great for stews and soups, but it also happens to make a mean lasagna! In this ingenious slow-cooker recipe, all you have to do is chop your veggies, then layer the ingredients (raw) into the crockpot. Serve with: Garlic bread and a green salad.

I used this recipe as a base instead of following it to the letter. I added fresh basil, oregano, salt, and pepper to the sauce as well as added shredded carrots and Italian sausage.
I think the recipe would have been bland without my spice additions, but with the fresh herbs it was absolutely hands-down the best lasagna I have ever eaten.
Not a "wow!" meal but definitely one I'll make again. I added carrots and next time perhaps broccoli as well. The plus? Great meal to get added veggies into your children if you have them. Both my 2 and 12 year old ate it even after knowing there is zucchini, spinach and mushrooms in it! Good flavor and couldn't be easier...everything goes in raw. Enjoy!
