This was sooooo amazing. I think that it is seriously the best lasagna I have ever made. Even my daughter liked it and she does not like any lasagna. Thank you soooo much for posting this recipe. This is definitely going to be one that I will be making again.

Pretty good recipe. I will definately make this again, but next time I will add some Italian sausage and some dried red pepper flakes.

OMG!! YUM, YUM, YUMMY!! This was great and soo easy!! I used an oblong crock pot, so I had to use extra cheese to make the top cheese layer. Hmm, it is a good thing, I love cheese!! I was in a rush so it cooked on high for 2 hours. I used a spatula to cut and dip it. I read a post that wanted a suggestion on what to use for dipping. It worked pretty well. I served it with cheese garlic toast. It made more than we would eat, so I called my best friend and gave some to her family. They loved it too. She is all about easy to make food, especially when it is this good.

This won't replace my Barilla no-boil noodle lasagna recipe, but I LOVED how easy and quick it was. And how I got it going while I was making lunch and then only had to worry about a salad and bread at dinner time. The noodles cooked perfectly. A rectangular or oblong crock pot would be better, but we survived with our round one. I also liked how this used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and egg. Thanks!!

This was quite easy and good. I was shocked that the noodles were cooked perfectly in seven hours. I did add water around the edges (about a cup) as suggested in some of the reviews, and I added some Italian seasonings to the meat and also to the cheese mixture. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to mix the cheeses together, but I did and it worked great. Next time I will make 1 1/2 times the sauce because it did come out a bit dry for our taste. What I love about this is the ability to change it so easily. I will add some italian sausage and pepperoni next time. Thanks for another "keeper" crockpot recipe!

Wonderful!! Will make again and again. I had a large oblong crock...made alot so i have to freeze the rest, lol Ill use my small crock next time..For the Oblong crock it took 4 hours,..1st hour on high then lowered,I used a home made sausage sauce + mixed an egg and grated parm in the cottage cheese mixture. Also added a layer of fresh spinach on the cottage cheese layer...oh and added 1.5 cup of water around the out side Thank you for such pleasing dinner.

This dish was very well received by the family. It was easy & delicious. <br/>I doubled the recipe with slight trepidation as the cooker was over 3/4 full, but luckily didn't bubble over. I was concerned such a large amount would take longer than 4 hours to cook through, but it cooked to perfection with 1 hour on high & 3 hours on low. I will definitely keep this one in my favourites.

I loved this recipe. Very easy to prepare. I added 1/2 cup of water around first layer of noodles and 1/2 cup of water around the edge of the top layer of noodles to prevent dryness and to retain moisture. I added chopped bell peppers, basil, extra oregano, a pinch of chili powder, garlic powder as well as fresh garlic, a dash of red pepper, and only 1 tsp. salt, fresh ground pepper. Sauce was very tasty before I added to my ground beef and sauteed onions, bell pepper and minced garlic. I layered with cottage cheese, grated pamesian and topped with mozzerella. I cooked for 4 hrs. on low in large crockpot. No burned edges, very moist and very spicy and not bland, served with garlic bread and a bottle of red wine. Yum, Yum.

This was very good and easy to put together. I used ground turkey, because it's what I normally use instead of ground beef. I think next time I will try using Italian sausage for more depth of flavor. I used the "oven ready" (no boil) noodles and after 5 hours in my crock pot, the noodles were a bit overdone for my tastes. This could be my crock pot--it tends to cook hotter and faster than my old one. Next time, I will try the normal lasagna noodles and see if it helps with this problem. I also need to remember to use a crock pot liner next time with this recipe--since my crock pot cooks so hot, we had burnt-on cheese and noodles in the corners. Thanks for the recipe, Derf!
