Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup part-skim Ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup low-sodium fat-free marinara sauce (plus additional for serving)
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 4 no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 1 (9-ounce) bag baby spinach
  • 1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)

Directions

Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together mozzarella, Ricotta, Parmesan, egg, oregano and garlic powder.

Spread 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce in bottom of slow cooker. Sprinkle one half of zucchini over sauce and top with one third of cheese mixture. Break 2 noodles into pieces to cover cheese. Spread 2 tablespoons of sauce and then layer half of spinach and half of mushrooms. Repeat layers, ending with cheese and the remaining sauce. Firmly press ingredients into slow cooker.
