Slow Cooker Lasagna

I've never made lasagna before & the first time is going to be hard to beat! So easy & delicious! Adapted from Betty Crocker

Slow Cooker Lasagna
Total Time: 6-8 Hours
Serves 6
  • 3/4 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cans (15 ounces each) Italian style tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 container (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 uncooked lasagna noodles
Cook sausage garlic and onion in 10 inch skillet over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, basil and salt.

Mix 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and the ricotta and Parmesan cheese.

Spoon one fourth of the sausage mixture into 3-1/2 to 5 quart slow cooker; top with 2 noodles, broken into pieces to fit. Top with half of the cheese mixture and one fourth of the sausage mixture. Top with 2 noodles, remaining cheese mixture and one fourth of the sausage mixture. Top with remaining 2 noodles and remaining sausage mixture.

Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until noodles are tender. 

Sprinkle top of lasagna with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into pieces.

The Verdict
5/5! This is an AWESOME recipe! It is so easy to put together! I accidentally bought bratwurst type sausage, but it still worked great! You could substitute ground beef or whatever kind of meat you wish as well! If you love lasagna-try this now!
