I had serious doubts about this recipe...I didn't think the noodles would cook. I actually did mine all in a slow cooker on high, and in less than 1.5 hours it was perfect!!! (Note: my slow cooker doesn't take long to heat up). I admit I did change a lot of things. Like others, I used canned basil spaghetti sauce, low fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta (tried to strain it a little first - cottage cheese is more watery)...didn't add the parmesan (would've been better with it, but trying to make it more low fat) or mozzarella but instead put some sharp cheddar on the top only. I think that's one of the best things about this recipe: it's versatile, and as long as you include the right amt of liquids, it will turn out beautifully!
Since I cut out some of the flavor with the cheese, I added Italian dried spices to the spinach mixture.
