Crock Pot Vegetable Lasagna

Making lasagna in the crock pot is easy and delicious.


6 carrots
1 zucchini (courgette)
1/2 butternut squash
1/2 head of broccoli
8 lasagna noodles (uncooked)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Basil, oregano, salt

1 can (15 ounces) tomatoes
1 cup fresh tomatoes
1 teaspoon green pesto
1/2 onion
3 cloves garlic
5 leaves fresh basil

Combine the sauce ingredients in a blender.

Prepare the vegetables.  (Wash, peel, dice, etc.)

In the crock pot, layer 1/3 of the marinara sauce, then 1/2 the noodles (rectangular noodles in a round pan doesn't go down so easily...I had to break most of them to make them fit), then half of the carrots, zucchini, broccoli, squash and cheese.

Repeat, finishing with the marinara sauce.  Add the spices (basil, oregano and salt) on top of the tomato sauce.

Bake in the slow cooker for 2 hours (or more...our slow cooker isn't working so well.)
