Ingredients

  • 2 10-ounce package(s) chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove excess moisture
  • 1 cup(s) ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup(s) grated Parmesan (3 ounces)
  • 3 cup(s) marinara sauce

Preparation

  1. 1. In a bowl, mix together the spinach, ricotta, and ½ cup of the Parmesan. In a second bowl, mix together the marinara sauce and ½ cup water.
  2. 2. Spread ¾ cup of the marinara mixture in the bottom of a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Top with 2 noodles (breaking to fit), ¾ cup of the remaining marinara mixture, half the spinach mixture, and ½ cup of the mozzarella; repeat. Top with the remaining noodles, marinara mixture, mozzarella, and Parmesan.
  3. 3. Cover and cook on low until the noodles are tender, 3 ½ to 4 hours.
