Crock Pot Lasagna

Please a crowd with this flavor packed lasagna, which slow cooks to bubbling perfection in a crock pot. 

You Will Need:
{1} tbs. olive oil  
{2} jars (each 24 oz.) spaghetti sauce 
{1} lb. whole-milk ricotta cheese 
{2} tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste 
{18} ruffle-edged lasagna noodles (not no-boil noodles) 
{1} 8 oz bag Mozzarella cheese
{1} 5 oz bag Parmesan cheese
Thinly sliced fresh basil for garnish
slow cooker liner

Place your slow cooker liner in your crock pot, then spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of the pot.
Cover the sauce with a single layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (about 3), breaking the noodles as needed to fit. Spread about 1/3 cup of the ricotta mixture over the noodles.
Top with about 2 cups of sauce, then sprinkle with about 1 cup of the mozzarella and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese.
Repeat the layering 4 more times, starting with the noodles. 
Cover and cook on low until the noodles are tender and cooked through, about 4 hours.
Preheat oven to broil. Transfer the slow-cooker pot to the oven and broil until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. 
Let the lasagna rest for 20 minutes before serving. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
