While most lasagna recipes are relegated to weekend cooking, when you have the time to devote to a slow-simmering sauce and baked casserole, this showstopping how-to from Food Network Magazine is set to change that with the help of one key kitchen tool: the slow cooker.

Thanks to this trusty machine, you can simply assemble this Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna in the afternoon and then come back to a ready-to-eat dinner hours later. Just like a traditional lasagna, this hearty recipe comes together with plenty of decadent cheese — including a creamy ricotta-herb mixture studded with spinach and earthy mushrooms, as well as gooey mozzarella — but instead of being built in a baking pan, it's layered right in the slow cooker. Bonus: There's no need to make a tomato sauce from scratch. Pick up your favorite jar of marinara instead, and let it shine in this top-rated supper.
