Have been making this for years. Kids always eat up everything. Easy and delicious slow cooker recipe.
Rally surprised at how much I liked this. I did change it. Used one package of spinach, and sauted 1 onion chopped and 1/2 lb. italian sausage and 1 tsp oregano and added that to the marinara sauce. Really excellent!
This turned out surprisingly well! Never would have thought to put this in the slow cooker. I wouldn't put it in for any longer than 3 1/2 hours though, since the edges of the noodles got a little dry and crispy at the end. I only used 1 package of frozen spinach and added a few cloves of garlic to the ricotta mixture. Will make again.
Please indulge below...it is text that I'd "copied and pasted" from my written dedicated document for this recipe, because it is now in my "makeagainable" file, and a keeper of a recipe for sure. I halved this recipe and used my "Crockette"...This was a more than generous dinner for 2, as a one dish entree. I didn't go crazy trying to remove every drop of water from the spinach. My measuring of the Marinara in each layering was maybe a tad too zaftig....when it came time for the last layer of marinara, I had to augment a bit. I assembled the lasagna a few hours in advance and let everything all sit and get to know each other, before the Crockette even turned on.....all of the above is to say that I should probably do everything the same for next time.....this was the most off the hook "PERFECT IN EVERY WAY" Lasagna. Just awesome. I used RAO'S Marinara.
This is an excellent recipe. I make this lasagne with freshly chopped baby spinach, instead of frozen. It takes a little extra time, but worth it..I think it makes a better meal with the fresh spinach.
Hi: I did,try this recipe.I must confess,I did not think it was going to turn out as well as it did.It was simply perfect,even when I took it out of the slow-cooker.It's a keeper,Thanks. e
Very good and super easy to make. Not terribly exciting, but again, easy and filling. When I make it again I would probably go a bit heavier on the red sauce.
I'm not the chef in the house, but due to an unfortunate skiing spill, the Head Chef is on crutches. So, I decided to try my hand at a little slow-cooker action. I found this recipe ridiculously easy and perfectly spinach-y. I actually cooked down my own greens, rather than using the frozen stuff, and added a little extra ricotta, just to use up what I had on hand. I did NOT water down the sauce, nor did I use "not no-boil" noodles, because the Trader Joe's I shop at only has the no-boil kind. It didn't seem to make a difference at all! It came together great, just the right amount of everything. My husband and toddler both liked it, too!
This turned out really good. I followed the previous review and halved the amount of spinach. I like spinach but the two 10 oz portions seemed like a lot. The lasagna came out perfectly - not watery and the layers held together. My husband and toddler both liked this meal. I will make again.
