My family is crazy about my lasagna, so I thought I'd try it in the crock pot. I think it would be great for a potluck.

This was the best lasagna! Left out the wine and added a small can of olives. Used a can of Italian diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. A lot easier than cooking in the oven. I'll never use my old lasagna recipe again.

This is fabulous! I followed recipe except for adding tomato sauce. I instead added 1 more cup of spaghetti sauce. I also found that 6 hours, maybe less was about right for cooking time. Delicious recipe!

I've made this recipe several times and thought it was time to leave a review. This is exactly how I want my lasagna to taste! I've tried many recipes and never could get just the right flavor but this is it. The wine and italian sausage make it perfect :) My family prefers cottage cheese and I always use the no bake lasagna noodles for all of my lasagna recipes. Other than that, I pretty much follow the recipe to a "T"- except for the cooking time. Mine is always browning around the edges by 3 hours in my crock pot. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! My search is over.
