I love lasagna but have always hated making it because it takes so much time. Here is a great slow cooker recipe that I have used for years. You can mix and match cheeses and types of noodles. This also freezes well- if I have any leftovers!
- 1 (16 ounce) box rigatoni pasta, cooked
- 1 1⁄2 lbs hamburger, browned and drained
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 (15 ounce) cans pizza sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- Mix all ingredients together and place in slow cooker.
- If you prefer you can layer the lasagna like "traditional" lasagna.
- Cook on low for 5 hours.
Loved this! Burned after 3 1/2 hours so next time I will cook for less time and it will be perfect!
We loved this and it was so easy to make. I layered it into the crockpot starting with meat, peppers, onion, sauce then cheese 3 times. I rinsed out the sauce cans with a little water. I think the dryness someone talk about might be fixed by mixing the sauce with the cooked pasta. Mine was done in 4 hours. I think it would have been done in 3 if I cooked the peppers with the gr beef. I will be making this again!! Now I have to make 4 copies of this for parents since the kids loved it so much.

This was a delicious flavour. I didnt follow receipe exact. Instead of pizza sauce i used 2 cans of wholse tomatos in puree and mashed them before putting in. I also layed like a lasagne, first mince, then green pepper, also added layer of onion finely chopped and mushroom. Then cheeses and pasta, only made 2 layers. I took advice of someone elses review and mixed the sauce with the pasta first before layering and added 1 can of water and tablespoon of garlic. I topped with cheese and thyme. Cooked on low for 4 hours. Next time I will add 2 cans of tomatoes instead of one for a more intense tomato flavour. Even my 2 year old fussy eater son ate this all up. I found that the tomatoes added a real homemade taste to this dish, instead of the pizza sauce. Thanks will definently do again.
