  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
