Anyways...last night John made dinner and it was awesome. He made slow cooker lasagna.

It really was very easy to put together and I cannot recommend this enough. It has a ton of spinach, so you can feel confident you are getting your veggies. Its also cheesy, but not so cheesy that it upset my delicate digestive system.
2 10-ounce packages of frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed to remove excess moisture)
1 cup ricotta (we used low fat)
3/4 cups grated Parmesan
3 cups marinara (we used Prego, but will probably opt for something with less sugar next time. John noticed the sweetness, I did not)
6 lasagna noodles (not no boil)
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
1. In a bowl mix together spinach, ricotta, and 1/2 cup of Parmesan. In a second bowl, mix together the marinara sauce and 1/2 cup water.
2. Spread 3/4 cup of marinara mixture in the bottom of your slow cooker. Top with two noodles (break to fit if needed), 3/4 cup of the remaining marinara mixture, half of the spinach mixture, and 1/2 cup the mozzarella; repeat. Top with remaining noodles, marinara mixture, and Parmesan.
3. Cover and cook on low until the noodles are tender, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
See...not too difficult, right?
I also finished my cozy Dahlia color sweater last week. So soft I don't want to take it off (but I do so it won't stink)
