Who would have thought you could make LASAGNA in the CROCK POT!! DH likes this version more than the oven baked one.

I've been making lasagna once a week for the past few weeks, since the 6-year-old ds declared himself a lasagna conoisseur last month. I've been making the Pepperoni Lasagna (Pepperoni Lasagna), as it's his favorite, but it just takes so long. I decided to try to find a lasagna for the crockpot that might work for us. This is pretty darn close. I did throw in a little extra cheese, since I had some that needed to be used up, but I won't do that next time. It was a bit too cheesy for my tastes. I have no idea how many lasagna noodles are in 8 oz, so I just used 9 noodles total. That seemed to work well. The sauce still tasted fairly "ketchupy" to me when I combined the ingredients, so I ended up added about 2 tsp of Italian seasoning and about 1 1/2 tsp of cumin. I would definitely do that again. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms, to put in a little extra veggies. I really think it would do well with some shredded zucchini or something. I doubt it would even be noticeable. As always, I subbed ground turkey for ground beef. The family loved this, though. I want to look through some other recipes and maybe tweak the sauce a bit, but this is an excellent jumping-off point for an easy crockpot lasagna recipe.

This was amazing, so much better than other lasagna recipes I have tried in the crock pot. I used 1 cup of ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese and only 2 cups of mozzarella with 1 cup of sharp cheddar, and the flavor was wonderful. Also, it only took about 3-1/2 hours to cook. Thanks for posting!

This was so yummy! My daughter said it's her new favorite meal! It's quite something to say that for me because usually I fail at crockpot cooking! This was a success and will go in my rotation for "too busy to cook" days. Thanks! I've made it as written and then again with some substitutions. I used jar sauce and added spinach that I chopped in the food processor. I mixed some Monterey Jack cheese with the mozzarella and that turned out well also. Thank you, thank you for a crockpot meal that works for me!
