Notes

  • Our Casserole Crock was PERFECT for this dish! For the first time ever, I did not have to break lasagna noodles to fit my crock pot and I loved that. However, if you do not have a casserole crock, I have used my 6 qt non-stick slow cooker many a time for the perfect lasagna every time.
  • I never use NO BOIL noodles in my lasagna. And, I never boil them ahead of time. My favorite recipes call for enough liquid that the noodles cook in the crock pot without needing that extra step.

  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
