This is a great soup and quite hearty to warm one's soul. It makes 18 servings and is even better the next day.
Since our family has to watch sodium for medical issues, we do not use chicken soup base or bouillon when called for and instead use homemade chicken stock. By doing so we can control the sodium as needed. This recipe's nutritional info is if you are using homemade stock/low sodium homemade stock.
You may also cut back on the fat by using a substitute for the butter and/or cheese if you wish. We opted for Smart Balance Buttery Lite Spread for this recipe and nutritional info.
Remember the cooking time is 5 Hours on High or 8 Hours on Low in your Slow Cooker.
Please see the bottom of instructions if you wish to use chicken base instead of stock.
Hope you enjoy the recipe.

An excellent vegetarian lasagna, my family loves it. I make it in a 9" square pan and cut it into 9 generous servings. I like to use the no-boil lasagna noodles because they are shorter and fit my pan better, but you can use regular noodles and break them to the right shape. You may want to add extra sauce to help the noodles cook if you do that. You can use just zucchini or mix zucchini, yellow squash and add in some bell peppers for a more colorful lasagna.

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert! Submitted by CHEF_MEG
