Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Lasagna

November/December 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (881 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.

Very nice

The first time I made this I was trying to make this a 4 serving dish and I used too much cheese, ending up with high cholesterol test results.
I wonder how this recipe would fare with creamy tofu?

Also, the make ahead tip is not really clear, could I fill the slow cooker the night before?

No oven needed!

I made as directed I did add and Italian herb blend to the sauce...and it was time I think I will add the carrots and the onion others mentioned

Simple and not made with a canned sauce
Good base, fix it and forget it

I like with how tedious lasagna can become, especially when you make your own sauce, that this lasagna does not have that daunting, time consuming nature. I think this recipe does need some jazzing up with spices. I added a whole onion to the tomato mixture, along with basically a homemade italian spices blend. I added some spice to the veggie mixture as well. I suppose if it needs anything, I would do some more spice tweaking. I could see this being quite bland as is. It is a good recipe and did not take much hands on time at all.


I used this recipe as a base instead of following it to the letter. I added fresh basil, oregano, salt, and pepper to the sauce as well as added shredded carrots and Italian sausage.

I think the recipe would have been bland without my spice additions, but with the fresh herbs it was absolutely hands-down the best lasagna I have ever eaten.

just layer it and forget it

It's misleading to other

It's misleading to other readers to give a five-star rating to a VEGETARIAN lasagne recipe when your version included Italian sausage. Some tweaking is certainly acceptable, but adding meat to a meatless recipe puts it in a completely different category.

I'll make it again...

Not a "wow!" meal but definitely one I'll make again. I added carrots and next time perhaps broccoli as well. The plus? Great meal to get added veggies into your children if you have them. Both my 2 and 12 year old ate it even after knowing there is zucchini, spinach and mushrooms in it! Good flavor and couldn't be easier...everything goes in raw. Enjoy!

Is there an easy way to make this in a smaller crockpot? I would like to be able to make in a 3.5 quart slow cooker..
