Easy Recipes: Crockpot Veggie Lasagna

Have you ever made lasagna in the crockpot?

It is really easy.

And it keeps your house from warming up in the summertime.

Lasagna is also versatile as you can make it meaty or go with a veggie only version. We like both at our house.

This one is all veggie, but feel free to add some browned hamburger meat, cooked Italian Sausage,  or whatever you have on hand.

Ingredients:

  • 2 (24 oz) jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 16 oz container Ricotta cheese
  • 2-3 cups shredded Mozzarella, divided into fourths
  • 1 bag fresh spinach
  • 1 box of no boil lasagna noodles
  • 8 oz container fresh mushrooms, sliced and divided into thirds
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

For lasagna I always use my oval 6 qt crockpot.

Layer about 1/4 of a cup of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the crock.

Place a layer of lasagna noodles over the sauce.

Break them up as needed to accommodate the shape of the crock.

Perfection not needed.

Mix together your Ricotta cheese and egg.

Whisk until thoroughly combine.

Add salt, pepper and a clove or two of crushed garlic.

Mix well.

Add one-third of the Ricotta cheese mixture over the noodles and spread evenly.

Add a hearty layer of washed, fresh spinach.

Top the spinach with one-third of the sliced mushrooms.

Top with one fourth of the shredded cheese.

Pour one forth of the spaghetti sauce over the cheese and veggie mixture.

Repeat noodle, ricotta, spinach, mushrooms, shredded cheese and spaghetti sauce until you have three layers.

Top with one final layer of noodles, one final layer of sauce and then one final layer of shredded cheese.

(As you see, I ran out of my Mozzarella mixture- Matthew is a little cheese eater. I had to finish off with cheddar cheese.)

Put the lid on it and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.

When it is done it will look like this:

Plate it up and serve it hot.

My kids like cheese toast with their lasagna.

This is an easy recipe that you can play around with and add or omit ingredients to meet the needs and tastes of your family.

Change the order of the layers up if you like. Make it your own- there is no science to it.

Enjoy!

      Thanks Megan for your kind words.
      Did you prefer the crockpot method opposed to the traditional oven method? I love that it does not heat up my house. It is so hot here in Texas, ya know.

    this looks really good. Being that we keep kosher IE; don’t eat dairy and meat products together, this looks even better!
