    Our family loves lasagna but this was just ok. It certainly was fast. But the family found it to be bland. It needs onion or garlic when cooking the meat, definitely some spices like Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. It was indeed quick to make and the noodles turned out well but the alfredo sauce didn't make it taste traditional like baked lasagna with ricotta. We wanted to love it. Thanks for posting Carolinafan. Maybe we are just traditionalists when it comes to lasagna :)

    This is a super simple alternative to "real" lasagna. We really enjoyed it- thanks! I have now made this several times and noticed that the only thing I consistently change is that I add onion and a little bit of salt and pepper when browning the meat- sometimes beef and sometimes turkey.

    This recipe was easy enough to make and the flavor was really good but I have to admit that the noodles become almost a "doughy" texture. Cooked completely but not like regular boiled lasagna noodles. However, this dish did get better the next day and we enjoyed it even more. Great for a time pincher but I prefer traditional baked lasagna.

    I rarely give five stars, but I was amazed by this slow cooker lasagna. The flavor was excellent and it was so easy to put together. I accidentally bought no-boil lasagna noodles, but they worked just great. Just to save some 'fat grams' I may try it next time with low fat Alfredo sauce and ground turkey. I used my rectangular slow cooker, not a crock pot and it was the perfect size and easy to serve. Thanks Carolinafan!

    I've had this in my 'Saturday Night Supper' cookbook since it was published back in April/06 and I finally made it today. We loved it! I had to lighten it up some, due to my husband's heart stuff and so I used ground chicken and low-fat alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese. It turned out wonderful, you'd never know that it was chicken instead of beef. It's not real pretty getting it out of the crockpot for serving, but, well, it all gets mixed up in the end, right? My husband and daughter loved it and I'll certainly be making this again. It's perfect for busy days and so easy to put together. Thanks for posting this recipe Carolinafan!
