When dinnertime rolls around, what do all parents have in common? Lack of time! But just because you’re lacking time, doesn’t mean that you have to make a bland, unhealthy meal. Our friends at Weelicious have dreamed up this recipe for crock pot veggie lasagna that is easy-to-prepare, delicious, and time-saving. It only takes a few minutes to prepare the whole thing and by the time you get home, a full, hearty meal will be waiting for you and your family!

Serves 6-8

2 Cups Zucchini, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Mushrooms and/or Spinach
1 15 oz Container Ricotta Cheese
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 Tbsp Dried Italian Herbs
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Kosher Salt
1 Large Egg
1 25 oz Jar Pasta Sauce
1 Box Lasagna Noodles (uncooked)
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese, grated

1. Place the vegetables in a food processor and pulse to roughly chop.

2. Place the ricotta, parmesan cheese, herbs, garlic powder, salt and egg in a bowl and stir to combine.

3. Pour half of the pasta sauce in the bottom of a crock pot.

4. Place a layer of noodles on top of the sauce, covering the entire surface, breaking the noodles to fit the pot.

5. Layer half of the ricotta mixture on top of the noodles, followed by 1 cup of the chopped vegetables and then one cup of mozzarella cheese.

6. Repeat with another layer of noodles, followed by the remaining ricotta mixture and the chopped vegetables.

7. Pour the remaining pasta sauce on top of the lasagna and top with the remaining cup of the grated cheese.

8. Cook on low for 4 hours.
