Mushroom Spinach Lasagna Author: Canadian Living Credits: Mushroom Spinach Lasagna

A slow-cooker lasagna may not be as crisp as a baked one and its noodles may be softer, but its gooey cheese topping is pretty irresistible.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tub (500 g) cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pkg (10 oz/300 g) spinach thawed
  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Tomato Mushroom Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 carrots finely diced
  • 4 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 4 cups sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 1 jar (700 ml) pasta sauce

Method

Tomato Mushroom Sauce:
In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion, carrot, garlic, mushrooms, herb seasoning, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes until liquid is evaporated, about 8 minutes.  Add pasta sauce and 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water; bring to boil.

Meanwhile, in bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, nutmeg, salt and pepper. In sieve, press moisture out of spinach; chop and add to bowl, stirring to combine.

Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of the sauce into a slow-cooker. Arrange 3 of the noodles over sauce. Top with half of the cheese mixture. Cover with 3 noodles and half of the remaining sauce. Repeat with noodles and remaining cheese mixture. Top with remaining noodles and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with provolone. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours or until bubbly and pasta is tender. Makes 8 servings.
