Ingredients

8 cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped 140 g
3 Portobello mushrooms, halved and thinly sliced 130 g
1 zucchini, quartered lenghtwise and thinly sliced 130 g
3 cups canned tomatoes, low sodium 800 g
3 cups canned tomatoes (diced) 800 g
1 cup canned corn, rinsed
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp salt 9 g
vegetable oil spray
420 g lasagne noodles, whole wheat 20
3 cups mozzarella cheese, part-skim, shredded 200 g

Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Oven-ready lasagne noodles, which do not require any precooking, are used in this recipe.

The dark gills found on the underside of a portobello mushroom cap are edible, but can turn a dish an unappealing gray colour. If you like, gently scrape the gills off with a spoon.

Method

Prepare the filling

In a large bowl, combine egg, ricotta, spinach, mushroom and zucchini. Mix well.

In a medium bowl, combine crushed and diced tomatoes and their juices, corn, garlic, crushed red pepper (if using), and salt. Mix well.

Assemble the lasagna

Generously coat a 6-quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray.

Spread 1 1/2 cups of the tomato mixture in the slow cooker. Arrange 5 noodles over the sauce, overlapping them slightly and breaking into pieces to cover as much of the sauce as possible. Spread half of the ricotta-vegetable mixture over the noodles and firmly pat down, then spoon on 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce and sprinkle with 1 cup of mozzarella.

Repeat the layering once more, starting with the noodles.

Top with a third layer of noodles. Evenly spread the remaining tomato sauce over the noodles. Finish off with the remaining 5 noodles over the tomato sauce.

Set aside the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella in the refrigerator.

Cook

Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on 'High' for 2 h or 'Low' for 4 h.

Turn off the slow cooker, sprinkle the reserved mozzarella on the lasagna, cover and let stand for 10 min to melt the cheese. Serve.
