Gluten Free Slow Cooker Lasagna


Ricotta filling
1 lb whole milk ricotta
1/2 c milk
1 egg
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese*
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese*
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 jars tomato sauce*
8-10 oz no bake rice lasagna noodles
1/2 c water

1/2 c shredded mozzarella*

*always check with the manufacturer to make sure these products are gluten free.


1. Mix all ingredients of the ricotta filling in a bowl.
2. In a large slow cooker, add about 1/2 c tomato sauce and 1/4 c water.
3. Layer with about 2-3 noodles, broken up slightly. Add enough sauce to cover noodles. Top with half of the ricotta filling.
4. Repeat step 3.
5. Top with noodles, sauce and 1/4 c water.
6. It is important that there is enough liquid as the noodles need moisture in order to soften.
7. Place cover on the slow cooker. Cook on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-5 hours. Top with remaining shredded mozzarella and let rest about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
8. Optionally serve with more sauce if necessary.
