Slow Cooker Vegetarian Lasagna

“In college, choosing macaroni and cheese or juniorettes is always a first choice- But sometimes, it just doesn't cut it. Home cooked meals are very necessary every once in awhile, as you may know. Slow cooker recipes are great in apartments, especially when space is limited to prepare a feast. This takes only minutes to prepare, then let it cook while you study or rest for 2 1/2 hours. *Note: Veggie crumbles are a heat and serve vegetarian meat substitute- If you don't want this to be vegetarian, you can substitute 8 ounces ground beef, browned, for the crumbles.”
