  • In a food processor, blend olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes until paste forms. Add remaining ricotta ingredients, adding a little water if too thick. (This can be made the night before and stored in an airtight container in the fridge).
  • Grease inside of crock pot.
  • Spread thin layer of sauce over bottom of slow cooker.
  • Place a single layer of noodles over the sauce, breaking off corners to fit if needed.
  • Spread 1/3 of ricotta mixture over noodles, then a layer of sauce, then sprinkle 1/3 of the white beans over the sauce.
  • Repeat the layers two times more, ending with a last layer of noodles and topping with sauce.
  • Cook on low 3 to 4 hours or high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until fork will easily go through the middle and past is al dente. (Add 1/2 cup extra sauce or water if you need to leave it in an hour or two longer).

  1. it was very easy to make. I made the ricotta the night before like it suggested. I agree with the other review about needing more sauce, however. I will definitely make this again!
  2. This was easy to prep and make and the taste was pretty good, but ours turned out a little dry, despite putting the crock pot setting on low for 3.5 hours as directed. I made no alterations to the recipe. Next time, I might check on it before 3.5 hours or add more marinara sauce. This was my first lasagna in a crockpot and I liked the technique. Made for Sun and Spice 2013.


I'm an ethical vegan, atheist, wife and stay-at-home mother of a 7 year old DD and 1 year old DS. I have also been known to hug a tree from time to time, but I don't do it professionally. I love life, walk around in awe of the universe, and am always made happier by things that smell delicious. Like pumpkin pie spice. And turmeric. We've been vegan since Fall '08, and are just starting to feel like we know the tricks of the trade...and Recipezaar has certainly made the transition easier. Yey Recipezaar!
