POTTED LASAGNA

1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach

1 pound uncooked ground turkey

1 jar (10-oz) pesto sauce

1 cup frozen chopped onion

1 large egg

1 container (15-oz) ricotta cheese

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Canola oil cooking spray

2 jars (16-oz each) four-cheese Alfredo pasta sauce

1 box (9-oz) no-boil lasagna sheets

1 pkg (16-oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Place spinach in a microwave-safe bowl.  Cover and microwave for 6-8 minutes.  Drain.  Let stand until cool enough to handle; squeeze out excess liquid.

In  a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook and stir turkey until browned, breaking up clumps.  Drain off fat.  Stir in pesto sauce and onion; set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat egg with a fork.  Stir in ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and spinach until combined; set aside.

Coat a 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.  Spoon 3/4 cup of the pasta sauce into slow cooker.  Top with a layer of lasagna noodles, breaking them to fit.  Add 1/3 cup of the ricotta cheese mixture, spreading to edges.  Sprinkle one-third of the turkey mixture over the ricotta cheese mixture.  Top with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese.  Top with 3/4 cup of the pasta sauce.  Repeat layers twice more.  End with noodles and remaining pasta sauce.  Cover and refrigerate remaining mozzarella cheese.

Cover slow cooker and cook on LOW for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours or until noodles are tender.

Turn off slow cooker. Sprinkle reserved mozzarella cheese on top of lasagna.  Cover; let stand for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

That looks so good! I think I'd like it more with chopped grilled chicken rather than turkey, but that's just my preference.
