Let's Make It
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add mushrooms and peppers; cook and stir 3 min. Remove from heat. Add spinach; stir until wilted. Stir in tomato sauce.
Mix egg, ricotta, 1-1/2 cups shredded cheese and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan until blended.
Spoon 1-1/2 cups sauce into slow cooker; top with layers of half each of the noodles (broken to fit) and ricotta mixture. Cover with 2 cups sauce. Top with remaining noodles (broken to fit), ricotta mixture and sauce. Cover with lid.
Cook on LOW 4 to 5 hours (or on HIGH 2 to 3 hours) or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; let stand, covered, 10 min. or until shredded cheese is melted.
Serve with smart sides, such as a crisp mixed green salad or your favorite steamed vegetable, to balance out the meal.
How to Store Dried Pasta
Dried pasta will last almost indefinitely if stored in an airtight glass or plastic container in a cool dark place. Dried whole wheat pasta can turn rancid, however, so should be used within the recommended time listed on the package.
For easy cleanup, line slow cooker with plastic liner bag before filling with ingredients and cooking as directed.
