Crock Pot Vegetarian Lasagna

“This is an easy lasagna to make. It smells wonderful while cooking and tastes great. I adapted this recipe from a combination of others and came up with this vegetarian version. You can make this vegan easily by adding more of your favorite vegetables and using soy cheeses. Even the non vegetarians I made this for had seconds.”
