Crock Pot Spinach Lasagna

adapted fromĀ Mostly Food and Crafts

makes 6-8 servings

Prep time: 10-20 minutes

Cook time: 2-4 hours


6-7 regular lasagna noodles (not no-boil)

20 oz. spinach, thawed (if you think this will be too much for your family, see note above)

1 C ricotta cheese

3/4 C grated Parmesan cheese

3 C marinara sauce (we added some cooked ground beef to ours)

1/2 C water

1 1/2 C mozzarella cheese

If using ground beef, brown with salt and pepper or a bit of pesto (yum). Add this to your marinara sauce. Add 1/2 C water to it all.

While beef is browning, combine spinach ricotta cheese, and 1/2 C Parmesan cheese.

Ladle about 3/4 C marinara sauce into bottom of crock pot. Add 2 lasagna noodles, breaking if necessary to make them fit. Top with 3/4 C marinara sauce, 1/2 spinach mixture and 1/2 C mozzarella.

Repeat (noodles, sauce, spinach, mozzarella).

Top with final 2 noodles. Add remaining sauce and remaining Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.

Cook in crock pot for 3-4 hours on low or 2 hours on high.
