Slow Cooker Lasagna

This recipe was so simple and smelled good while cooking.  It is not a substitute for the real thing, though! It was ok at best.  I will make it again with my own twists on it.  But with those of you with little kiddos or picky eaters it will be super for that!
1 pound Italian sausage
1/2 cup onion chopped
3 cans 15 ounce Italian style tomatoes**I used crushed**
2 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 15 ounce container ricotta cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
15 uncooked lasagna noodles

Cook the sausage and onion and drain.  Stir in tomato sauce, basil and salt.  Mix 1 cup of the mozz cheese, ricotta and parmesan cheeses together(put aside the remaining 1 c mozz,  Spoon 1/4 of the sausage mixture into the bottom of a sprayed slow cooker.  Top with 5 noodles**I could not fit 5.  I broke them into pieces to fit the bottom.** Spread 1/2 cheese mixture on top then 1/4 sausage mixture...top with noodles then cheese and sausage mixture. Top with noodles and remaining sausage mixture.  Cover and cook for 4-6 on low setting.  Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella over the top and cover.  Let stand until cheese is melted and cut and eat! Enjoy~
