Slow Cooker Lasagne (Vegetarian)

by Collette White | 25 September, 2020

Good Afternoon friends, I hope this finds you well. As promised, here is a new and exciting recipe (let’s just say I did a happy dance in the kitchen when it turned out for the first time, as I LOVE slow cooking meals!). Silverbeet and Mushroom Slow Cooked Lasagne! I have made it a couple of times now and it’s a huge hit with my family, even for Miss 9 who REALLY doesn’t like mushrooms! I hope you love it as much as my family does. 

Ingredients

700ml passata

16 -20 button mushrooms – roughly sliced

1 large bunch silverbeet – shredded into 2-3cm pieces

375g ricotta

200-250g sliced cheese

250g lasagne sheets (dry)

1 tblspn dried rosemary leaves

1 tblspn dried thyme leaves

1 tblspn dried parsley leaves

1 tblspn garlic granules

good pinch salt and pepper

paprika (to sprinkle on top optional)

Method

Place layers of the ingredients into the slow cooker in the following order:

  • 1/3 of the passata
  • 1 layer lasagne sheets
  • half the amount of silverbeet, mushrooms, herbs, garlic
  • 1/3 of the passata
  • ricotta (use the entire amount – I place teaspoon size dollops around the entire lasagne as I find this difficult to spread)
  • 1 layer of cheese
  • 1 layer lasagne sheets
  • the remaining half of the silverbeet, mushrooms, herbs and garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • the remaining 1/3 of passata
  • 1 layer lasagne sheets
  • 1 layer of cheese
  • Sprinkle with Paprika (optional)

Cook on LOW heat for 4 hours (or until the pasta sheets are completely cooked).

Notes

  • my slow cooker is a 7L Breville (not sponsored!) rectangle size that would hold 2 x whole roast chickens next to each other – if your slow cooker is a different size to this, you may need to adjust the time cooked and quantity of ingredients
  • you can use grated cheese if you prefer but be aware that store bought grated cheese has additives to prevent it from sticking together
  • this is a basic mushroom and silverbeet lasagne, you can add more vegetables eg grated carrot and zucchini depending on your preferences
  • you can make this gluten free by buying gluten free lasagne sheets
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
