  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, cook turkey and onion over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomatoes, spinach, basil, salt and pepper.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir 1 cup of the mozzarella, the ricotta and Parmesan cheeses. (Refrigerate remaining mozzarella cheese while lasagna cooks.)
  • 3
    In 6-quart slow cooker, spoon one-fourth of the turkey mixture; top with 5 noodles, broken into pieces to fit. Spread with half of the cheese mixture and one-fourth of the turkey mixture. Top with 5 noodles, the remaining cheese mixture and one-fourth of the turkey mixture. Top with the remaining 5 noodles and the remaining turkey mixture.
  • 4
    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours or until noodles are tender.
  • 5
    Sprinkle top of lasagna with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into pieces.

Expert Tips

  • To save time in the morning, the turkey and onions can be cooked and the cheese mixture made up the night before. Cover and refrigerate both in separate containers. When ready to use, continue with recipe as directed.
  • To save time and tears, purchased frozen chopped onion can be substituted for the chopped onion.
