  • Place about ½ cup of the marinara sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker and spread into an even layer.
  • Lay a single layer of noodles in slow cooker, breaking them up as needed to make them fit. Top noodles with 1/3 of the turkey/veggie mixture, then ¼ of the remaining sauce, and then ¼ of the shredded cheese.
