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.
Prepare the filling
In a large bowl, combine egg, ricotta, spinach, mushroom and zucchini. Mix well.
In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, corn, garlic, crushed red pepper (if using), and salt. Mix well.
Assemble the lasagna
Using a brush, cover the inside of the slow cooker with the oil.
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 add a third of the 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 of the mozzarella in the refrigerator.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on 'High' for 2 h or 'Low' for 4 h.
Turn off the slow cooker, add the reserved mozzarella on the lasagna, cover and let stand for 10 min to melt the cheese. Serve.
