INGREDIENTS

  • 2 packages frozen spinach
  • 2 cups Italian cheese blend, grated
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated, plus extra for garnish

  • 1 package lasagna noodles

PREPARATION

  1. Cook spinach according to package directions and let cool. Squeeze spinach in your hands to remove any excess moisture.

  5. Top the noodles with 1/3 spinach, 1/2 cup remaining Italian cheese and 1/4 remaining cheese sauce. Repeat the process so that you have a total of three layers.
  6. Place three noodles over the top of the lasagna. Spread the remaining sauce over the noodles, and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
  7. Cover, turn the slow cooker on low, and cook for 3 1/2-4 1/2 hours. Turn off the heat about 10 minutes prior to serving.
  8. Slice and serve hot, garnished with more cheese.
