    My whole family loved this! I doubled up on the beef, used some extra sauce, and used more mozzarella than it calls for. My husband does not like Italian food but loved this!

    Delicious! We loved it an it was even better leftover. I used more mozzarella than was called for on top to make a nice thick layer. I was sad when it was gone, so made it again a few days later!

    I made this today and it came out fabulous! I used the no boil noodles. I have several cock pots, i crock anything thats made for the oven. The i used for this recipe was an older cock so Its smaller but taller and i was able to cook it most of the day. The noodles were perfect. This came out better than any lasagna ive ever made in the oven!!

    Making this today. Added spinach to the meat mixture and using cottage cheese in place of ricotta. Just personal preference. I’m sure it will be delicious!

    And no…unfortunately not Cindy :( This is one of the few that you can’t make on low all day or the pasta will get mushy. It freezes really well though! Maybe you could make it on the weekend and then just warm it up when it’s time to eat during the week. I think it taste even better the 2nd or 3rd day.

    Way to make it your own, Monica!

    Very good recipe. Only a couple things. I added a medium chopped onion when I cooked the hamburger. I also added a teaspoon of minced garlic. Most lasagna recipes call for onion and was surprised it didn’t so I added it myself. It doesn’t need to cook for longer than 3.5 hours. Otherwise it will start to burn even on low. Don’t worry about noodles getting done. I wondered this when I made it. They came out nice and tender. Will make this again! Thanks!

    Since I work all day, could I leave this on warm for like 8 hours, instead of low for 3?

    I’d say 8-10 servings, depending on the serving sizes!

    Question: On average, how many does this meal serve?

    Made this for dinner today… why husband loved it and sooooo easy! I didn’t cook it for as long as the recipe stated, the sides were starting to burn after about 4 1/2 hours on low in my Crock Pot! Thanks Crockin Girls will be making this a lot more often. : )

    Question… in the recipe it says “1 package shredded mozzarella, divided” but in the steps it only uses the “cheese mixture”. Where do you use the rest of the mozzarella? I’m not used to using the slow cooker and not sure if I should put the rest of cheese on top before cooking, during cooking or after? Thanks!

    Nicole, I think cottage cheese will be fine. I’ve heard of other people using it and it came out really good.

  19. Nicole K.

    I always have made my lasagna with cottage cheese because I don’t really like ricotta, do you think it would work fine in the crock pot to substitute it in?

    It should freeze just fine. Wrap it in aluminum foil and then put that in a freezer bag!

    I made this today for dinner! It was fantastic! My daughter was blown away at how good our house smelled when we got home from her soccer game!

    Unfortunately, it is just me and my daughter, so, I was wondering if you knew if it was okay to freeze cooked lasagna. I am going to take some for lunch tomorrow, but, I don’t want it two nights in a row and don’t want it to go to waste.

  22. Rosalie B.

    Excellent & easy to put together.

    Whatever cheese you have left-over, top the lasagna in the last hour or so of the cooking time. Happy Crockin’!

  24. Jennifer S.

    In step #2 it says you only use part of the mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese to make the “cheese mixture” that you use in steps #3 and #5. Do you sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheeses between steps #5 and #6? Or do you sprinkle it on at the very end, before you serve it?

    This receipe was wonderful! My husband and I was able to get 3 meals out of the batch.
