    Line 5-quart oval slow cooker with removable crock with a slow cooker liner. Spray liner with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onion, garlic and mushrooms in oil, stirring frequently, until soft and just beginning to brown.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix remaining ricotta filling ingredients; stir in vegetables. In another large bowl, mix Pumpkin Filling ingredients.
  • 4
    Begin layering: In slow cooker, spread about one-third of the pumpkin filling (about 1 cup). Break 3 noodles to fit over pumpkin, making pieces fit together. Top with one-third of the ricotta filling (about 1 1/2 cups). Repeat layering 2 more times. Cover top layer with cheese. Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours or until thermometer inserted in center reads 165°F.
  • 5
    Remove crock insert from slow cooker to cooling rack; let stand 20 minutes uncovered. Use liner bag to lift lasagna from crock to cutting board. Cut away liner; cut lasagna into 12 pieces. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Not only does the slow cooker liner help prevent scorching along the edges, but it also allows for the lasagna to be removed for easier cutting--plus cleanup is a breeze!
  • Prep the two fillings ahead of time. Then just assemble, and let the slow cooker make dinner for you.
