Certainly edible, with a good taste. However, is lasagna really meant to be cooked in the crockpot? The noodles were 'mushy' and you don't get that crunchy top layer that you get when you cook it in a pan in the oven. For the trouble, I'd skip the crockpot on this one.
Given how long it takes to make Lasagna the traditional way, I thought this was a good alternative. The noodles were not "mushy" as one rater suggested when it was cooked on high. (I have not tried to cook it on low, though.) I did add 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese to the recipe. Great recipe for working moms.
With a few modifications, this was delicious!! In the AZ heat, we think twice before turning our ovens on, and the crock pot is a great alternative. I, too, layered the ingredients instead of mixing them all together. I boiled the noodles until they were al dente,cooked it on high for 3 1/2 hours, and it turned out great!
I tried this because of the good reviews and ease of the crockpot but maybe its because I used those precooked noodles someone suggested. They turned into mush and it just didnt' taste good. Probably won't use again. Like the other person posted - i'd rather just do the oven version. Sorry!
This was great because I made it the morning, and came home, it was ready to eat. (Wouldn't have been able to do that with regular lasagna!) I made this and used oven ready lasagna. (Saved me the step of boiling!) The kids LOVED this. Will make this again! This is also great for a family get together when you may be eating at different times!
It was easy and tasty BUT I probably would not make again only because it's too much like a Hamburger Helper. Some raters suggested layering it. If I'm going to layer it, I might as well make a regular one. I prefer recipes that don't use bottled sauces and at least this recipe uses a la carte ingredients. I broke the noodles in thirds rather than in bite-size pieces. The noodle consistency was good. I think if you have kids (we don't) this would be a good family recipe.
The flavor was good. I layered it like I read a lot of the people in the reviews did. Mine turned out very soupy. It was still layered but there was a lot of extra liquid in there. I probably won't make this again. It was just as much work as making lasagna the old way. Good but not as good as my regular.
Delicious! I used whole wheat uncooked lasagna noodles, and layered the ingredients. The noodles cooked fine. One word of caution: This recipe burns after 8 hrs in a large crock pot. It would have been perfect if we cooked it for ~5 or 6 hrs only. That said, everyone still ate up ALL of the unburned portions. :)
Suprisingly this really turned out good. It thickens up and serves out like the consistency of lasagna it's just not layered. I waited and added my mozzarella on top of my dish so it would be more like lasagna. Definitely would do this again, takes no time at all.
Good recipe, pretty easy too. I did layer the ingredients like traditional lasagna. And used no cook noodles. Next time I will add more cottage cheese. Thanks for the recipe.
