Super Easy Slow Cooker Lasagna

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

I love to pin on Pinterest and have seen quite a few recipes for slow cooker lasagna floating around. So, a few days ago I was feeling a bit adventurous and figured I’d go for it and attempt to make some lasagna (it’s literally been years since I’ve made it). Ok, that and the fact that I remembered to add ricotta cheese to my grocery list a few days before.

This Super Easy Slow Cooker Lasagna is one of my favorite crockpot recipes. Once you make this recipe you won't go back to the old way of making lasagna! You'll definitely want to add this to your list of easy dinner recipes!

Once you make this lasagna recipe you’ll never go back to the original way of making lasagna! I can’t believe how easy it was – and that’s something that I’m always looking for in a recipe! The only cooking involved is browning the ground meat. Yep that’s right, you don’t have to cook any noodles (or even buy special no-boil noodles).

Yes, it’s that easy!

Trent said he would have liked more sauce but that is definitely something I can add more of next time! I thought it tasted spectacular! This recipe made enough for two meals for us (plus an extra lunch for me). I froze the extra meal for later since Trent’s not a big pasta guy.

    I make slow cooker lasagna and we all love it. I also think it’s a plus not to have to boil the noodles before they go in. Looks like your turned out really good.

    • Tshanina Peterson

      I couldn’t agree more, Shelly! Why boil the noodles if you don’t have to? :O)

    Hi, this recipe looks great! I would love to down size it to make it fit into a small crockpot. How do you think it would affect the cooking time?

    • Tshanina Peterson
      Tshanina Peterson08-21-2014

      Thanks, Barbara! Aren’t the small crockpots 2-3 sizes smaller than the regular size crockpots? If that’s the case with yours, I would alter the cooking time to 1-3 hours (checking every hour).

    What do you do with the cup of water? It doesn’t say in instructions.

      Hi Ashley,

      After browning your meat, add the water in with the spaghetti sauce.
