Spray 5 quart slow cooker with non-stick spray and place 4 uncooked noodles in bottom. Layer with half each of beef mixture, spaghetti sauce mixture and mushrooms. Spread all of ricotta cheese over mushrooms, then sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Layer with remaining noodles, beef, spaghetti sauce mixture, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.

Chef Alli Kitchen Tip: Avoid removing lid of slow cooker during cooking time! Each time the lid is removed it takes the slow cooker 25-30 minutes to recover the previous temperature.
