Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (1048 votes)

Sure, the slow cooker’s great for stews and soups, but it also happens to make a mean lasagna! In this ingenious slow-cooker recipe, all you have to do is chop your veggies, then layer the ingredients (raw) into the crockpot. Serve with: Garlic bread and a green salad.

Just okay...

I was a little disappointed by this. I followed the receipe to a "t", but didn't think it tasted all that great. It was just "okay"...probably won't make this again.

Relatively easy to make, low calorie, freezes well, makes 8 BIG servings
Easy way for lasagna

I always make lasagna in the oven using uncooked noodles- this just takes the oven out of the equation. Nice to know it really does work, making lasagna in the slow cooker. I agree with others, mine came out a bit soupy in the bottom. Also, it was a bit bland (and I even thought ahead and added "Italian seasoning" herbs to the tomatoes). So, I definitely think, as others have said, this is a great Base recipe- add the veggies you love, and if it's even easier to use canned/jarred pasta sauce, go for it. Just make sure all the noodles are covered with the sauce.

No oven needed, easy to pull together
Make-Ahead/Equipment Clarification

I'm writing to clarify the make-ahead/equipment instructions on this recipe. There is not a make-ahead and it should be made a 6-quart slow cooker. We're sorry that the equipment is listed on the same line as the make-ahead, it's a technical problem that we are working to fix quickly. The lasagna cannot be assembled ahead in the slow cooker insert (and held overnight before turning the slow cooker on) because it's a food safety and timing concern. If you put a cold insert into the slow cooker, the timing of the recipe may not be accurate and it is a food safety risk because the food may stay "lukewarm" for too long. A cold insert takes too long to heat up and keeps the food from getting hot enough, quickly enough. Thank you for trying our recipe and we're sorry for the confusion.

My 2yo's like it but not us

Soupy. Followed recipe to a T. Needs more flavor from oregano and/or basil. Canned tomatoes made it watery & metallic. A good pasta sauce would be better & maybe some fresh basil. Good to know this can be cooked in crockpot but this recipe lacked....a lot

Easy, good to know lasagna can cook in crockpot
Lasagna SOUP is more like it

I did everything exactly as the recipe said and my lasagna turned out like soup. A few of the top noodles did not cook all the way through and the filling was runny. I expect lasagna to be in nice layers and there was no way to scoop this out of the slow-cooker without it falling apart.

easy, quick

Yes, I agree. The canned

Yes, I agree. The canned tomatoes also lend a very metallic taste. It needs better/thicker sauce & definitely more flavoring.
