preparation time
10 mins

cook time




2 (24 oz) jar tomato basil pasta sauce

9 thick wavy lasagna noodles

24 ounces part skim ricotta cheese

4 cup organic kale chopped

2 eggplants sliced

2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese



Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom so the noodles won't stick. Break noodles so they fit neatly and cover the bottom. Cover with 1/3 of the ricotta then top with kale, eggplant, sauce. cheese, and end with noodles. Repeat layers two more times. Top with a bit more sauce and cheese. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6. Turn off slow cooker and let rest for 45 minutes before serving so the lasagna has time to set up. Cut into squares and serve with chopped parsley. Happy Eating!
