Crock Pot Lasagna

Gretchen posted a recipe for a crock pot lasagna a few months ago and I finally got around to trying it last week. A little background: I don't like to cook. I'm not any good at it and, although I can hold my own, I've never had any confidence in my cooking. I would prefer to just eat, instead. Isn't it amazing how food tastes so much better when someone else cooks it?

Or maybe that's just me.

Anyway, I'd never made a lasagna in my life (pretty pathetic, eh?) so I thought a crock pot recipe would be a good place to get my tootsies wet. Amazingly, this recipe is a piece of cake...and it's GOOD! I made just a few tweaks - I cooked it for only four hours, because the reviews said the noodles become too soft after six hours, and I also added some defrosted spinach to the layers. YUM!

My daughter brought me a lovely present home from school this week: a bad cold. I've been feeling under the weather for the past few days, so some warm, easy-to-make lasagna sounds like the perfect end to a sick day.

Click to see the recipe below. Bon appetit! Make sure to come back and tell me how it was.

mmmm lasagna in the crock pot.

I have a recipe for Crock Pot PMS CAKE if you're interested. :-)

I didn't make lasagna for the first time until I was 24 if that makes you feel better. I thought it was some super hard involved's not.

Hey girl, glad you tried it and like it. You may just motivate me to post another easy crock pot meal. I sure do need some motivation to update! If only I could be half the rock star you are :)

I can't believe you've never made lasagna--even I can cook that! Crock pot lasagna, though... doesn't seem quite right.
