Hello all!  I have another slow cooker recipe for you today.  It’s Lasagna!  I would never have thought that Lasagna would be good in the slow cooker, but it is!  No more having to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare a delicious Lasagna meal.  Easy, breezy and delicious!  I love the addition of the spinach in this recipe.

The first time I made this I worried that the noodles would not cook properly, but no worries there!  I’ve made this twice now, once with spinach and once with kale, as I didn’t have spinach the first time around, and it is good either way.  I also add carrots to this on occasion.  The addition of the carrots, plus the spinach, made this recipe perfect for my family.  I love the addition of the vegetables in any Lasagna I make, whether in the slow cooker or oven.  The fact that I can make this in the slow cooker though, and know it turns out this delicious makes this recipe a definite keeper for me. Even more important is that my picky eater ate this, spinach and all!  I hope this will be a winner at your house as well.  Enjoy! 🙂

 

Happy Cooking!

    • Thank you! I was so skeptical about this one! Worried the noodles wouldn’t possible get done, and if they did, then they would over cook! I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. 🙂

  2. I adore lasagna so much and it’s been so long since I’ve had it because it’s so time consuming to make but your idea to make it in a slow cooker is brilliant! Happy FF and thanks for sharing such a smart cooking technique wiht me!
