I am a big lasagna type of person and was doubtful of a crockpot lasagna but was willing to give it a try. I am so glad I did. The flavor and texture were terrific. Two changes I made: I used my own sauce and I cooked on high for 4 hours. This will be in my menu planning.

My Husband and I liked this recipe. But we thought it was a bit dry. Perhaps I will try cottage cheese instead of ricotta next time. The flavor was good and it was easy to put together.
Thank you for the recipe.

This recipe was just okay. I was not pleased with it as the noodles at the bottom were stuck together and overcooked. <br/>I only had it on low for 4 hours.
