Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Put a layer consisting of one third of the meat mixture around on the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover with lasagna sheets. Pour one third of the cheese sauce mixture onto the lasagna sheets. Then add one third of the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and repeat until you have used all your ingredients. Finish off with a layer of cheese sauce and mozzarella.
