  • In a large bowl combine ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups Italian cheese blend, and spinach.

  • To assemble, spread 1 cup of the pasta sauce in the bottom of a 5-quart oval slow cooker. Top with half of the noodles, breaking and overlapping as necessary to fit. Add half of the turkey mixture, 1 cup of the pasta sauce, and half of the water. Spread half of the cheese mixture over ingredients in cooker. Repeat layers.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3-3/4 hours. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup pasta sauce and 1/2 cup of the Italian cheese blend. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes before serving.

  • To serve, cut lasagna into eight portions. If desired, sprinkle each serving with basil and serve with additional pasta sauce.

For easy cleanup:
