Crockpot LasagneThis recipe is so easy and delicious. You don't have to boil the noodles. It makes a lot, and leftovers freeze very well. Someone in my cooking group made it, and we all fell in love with it. I have made it several times since then. The original recipe calls for sausage, but I used ground beef instead with excellent results.


Total Time: 1/2 hour prep and 4 - 4 1/2 hours cooking time

Yield: 8 servings



  • 1 lb bulk Italian sausage ( I used ground beef)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3 cans (15 ounces each) Italian-style tomato sauce ( I used jarred spaghetti sauce)
  • 2 tsp dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
  • 1 container (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 15 uncooked lasagna noodles


  1. Cook ground beef and onion in a pan over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the meat is no longer pink. Drain off the fat with a spoon or turkey baster. Stir in tomato sauce, basil and salt.
  2. Mix 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and all the ricotta and Parmesan cheeses well.
  3. Spoon one-fourth of the ground beef mixture into 6-quart slow cooker; break 5 noodles to fit and put them on top. Then put half the cheese mixture and one fourth of the ground beef mixture. Break another 5 noodles to fit. Put the rest of the cheese mixture and one quarter of the ground beef mixture. Break the final 5 noodles to fit and top with the remaining ground beef mixture.

  5. Cover and cook on Low heat about 4 1/2 hours, or until the noodles are tender.
  6. Sprinkle top of lasagna with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve.

I made it up out of desperation for my mom to eat healthier. It's low-fat but you would never think it.

This is great first, because of the Alfredo sauce, secondly, using a crockpot, you can plug it in and go do something else. Brown hamburger in skillet and drain.


Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Spread 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce in bottom of crock pot.

Combine all ingredients, except noodles, in a large bowl. Pour half the mixture into a crock pot. Place the uncooked noodles over top of mixture, then pour the other half of mixture over top.

How should I measure all of the ingredients for this size of a pan, 16 5/8 x 11 7/8 x 2 1/2?

This size pan holds close to the same amount as a 9x13 in baking pan. If your recipe calls for the ingredients to be placed in 9x13, then you do not need to change anything unless you have a little extra of your ingredient quantities.


(I lots of times just add a little extra if it's in a little bigger pan like this) If your recipe is for a 9" square pan you will need to double your recipe.
