I got it from the blog: A year of slow cooking. It's been modified for a smaller crockpot. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2010/09/slow-cooker-pesto-spinach-lasagna.html

Recipe Ingredients for Crockpot Lasagna

24 ounce prego spaghetti sauce
6 oz lasagna noodles
5 oz pesto
6 oz ricotta cheese
1 lb spinach, fresh
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/4 cup water

Recipe Directions for Crockpot Lasagna

  1. Put a spoonful of pasta sauce (about 1/4 cup) into the bottom of your cooker and swirl it around.

  2. Add a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (you're going to have to break them to make a layer).

  3. Smear ricotta cheese and pesto onto the noodles.

  4. Add a handful or two of fresh spinach, and top with a layer of Parmesan and slice mozzarella cheeses.

  5. Repeat layers until you've run out of ingredients.

  6. The spinach is fluffy, so you're going to have to squish it down to make it all fit.

  7. Before closing the pot, put 1/4 cup of water into the empty pasta sauce jar and close and shake. Pour this saucy water over the top of everything.

  8. Now cover up and cook on low for 6 hours, or on high for about 3 to 4. You'll know it's done when the top layer begins to brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. It will also pull a bit away from the sides. Taste-test a noodle to check texture.

  9. Uncover, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
