Slow Cooker Veggie Lasagna Recipe

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 3-1/2 hours YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons 1% cottage cheese

  • 2 tablespoons egg substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup sliced zucchini
  • 2 no-cook lasagna noodles
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Spread 1 tablespoon spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Top with half of the zucchini and a third of the cheese mixture.
  • 2. Break noodles into 1-in. pieces; sprinkle half of the noodles over cheese mixture. Spread with 1 tablespoon sauce. Top with half of the spinach and half of the mushrooms. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cheese mixture and spaghetti sauce.
