Slow Cooker Vegetarian Lasagna

1 (26 ounce) jar marinara sauce (I like Prego)
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles
1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese
1 (8 ounce) packageshredded Italian cheese blend or 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup frozen veggie crumbles (Like Boca, etc)


In medium bowl, combine marinara sauce and tomatoes with their juice. Spray 4.5-6 quart slow cooker bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon 1 cup tomato-sauce mixture into bowl. Arrange 1/4 of noodles over sauce, overlapping noodles and breaking into large pieces to cover as much sauce as possible. Spoon about 3/4 cup sauce over noodles, then top with 1/2 cup ricotta, and 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Spread half of spinach over cheese. Repeat layering 2 more times beginning with noodles, but in middle layer, replace spinach with frozen crumbles. Place remaining noodles over spinach, then top with remaining sauce and shredded cheese. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook on low 2.5 to 3 hours or on high 1.5 to 1.75 hours, or until noodles are very tender.
