Spray a large oval slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

Add ¼ cup of sauce to the bottom of the slow cooker.

Add a single layer of noodles to the bottom of the slow cooker. You’ll need to break some of the noodles into smaller pieces, in order to fit.

Top with ⅔ cup of the cheese mixture.

Add a layer of zucchini slices.

Top with halved meatballs.

Cover with sauce then continue to layer noodles and cheese.

Add a layer of spinach, cover with sauce and add a layer of noodles.

Top the final layer with remaining sauce, ½ cup of mozzarella and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.

Cook on high for 2 ½ -3 hours until noodles are tender. (Check after 2 ½ hours)

Turn off heat and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Add basil for garnish, if desired.
