What you'll need...

  • 2 10- to 12-ounce packages frozen winter squash puree, thawed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 32-ounce container ricotta
  • 1 5-ounce package baby spinach (6 cups)

  • In a medium bowl, mix the squash and nutmeg. In a second bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  • In the bottom of a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, spread ½ cup of the squash mixture. Top with 3 of the lasagna noodles (breaking to fit), half the remaining squash mixture, 3 lasagna noodles, and half the ricotta mixture; repeat, ending with the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with the mozzarella.
