Crockpot Lasagna

Lasagna was one of the first things I made from scratch in college when I finally started cooking on my own full time. It was so much work, and when I was finished I had used every pan in the kitchen and was completely exhausted. When I finally tasted it all could I mutter was…eh.

It was okay, but by no means worth all that work, and I would have taken a store bought lasagna over what I had just slaved over any given day. I didn’t have time for meals like that. I was a busy college student…I had boys to date, parties to attend, and reality TV to watch.

When I came across a recipe for Crockpot Lasagna, I was intrigued. What a genius idea if this version truly was any less work than the traditional version. I was skeptical to say the least for the work that it was going to involve and had even lower expectations for what the taste would be.

The preparation was quick and seemed way too easy compared to what I was used to. As we sat down for dinner, I warned my family that this was an experiment and I had no idea how it would taste. I was pleasantly surprised, and swore this would be the only way we were doing lasagna in my house from now on.

This is perfect for company when you don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen.

Crockpot Lasagna Recipe

Speak Your Mind



  1. So glad you posted this! I got this recipe a few weeks ago and it has been a staple in our house ever since. The fam LOVES lasagne, but with 5 kids in multiple sports mama BARELY has time to cook! I’ve been meaning to send it to you, glad you found it!

  2. I love crockpot ANYTHING. This looks great!! THX!

  3. This looks great! I’ve seen recipes for it, but haven’t tried it… YET! This looks so good I’m going to go print the recipe right now. Thanks!

  4. Yum! Can you leave it longer on low, for 8-10 hrs? I work full-time and this would be perfect to make for those days.

  5. I love crockpot anything! Great recipe.

  6. that does look easy! i hate when i spend a lot of time cooking and cleaning something that produces mediocre results

  7. I am anxious to try this one. I have another crock lasagna recipe, but it is a ton of prep work….I always feel like I should have just made it the original way.
    Thanks for this one that sounds much easier.

  8. Would love to share this on my site Please let me know at carisnell(at)shaw(dot)ca if you are keen!

  9. Why would you waste all that good cocaine on your lasagna

  10. @Diapers.Deadlines.DIY,
    I think the longest you should cook it is around 6 hours otherwise it’s going to get soggy. I haven’t tried it though so maybe it would work. Also, every slow cooker is different. Mine cooks on the fast side so yours might be fine!

  11. I really like the sound of this. Will try it soon. Thanks for sharing!


  12. I was skeptical the first time I tried making lasagna in the crockpot but it worked out wonderfully. I even tried a Buffalo Chicken Lasagna recipe in the crockpot and it was fantastic and is a regular around here!

    Here is the link to that recipe:

  13. Wow! It looks so nice and layered too! I will have to try this soon!

  14. @Heather,
    Buffalo Chicken Lasagna…sounds incredible. Thanks for sharing – I have it bookmarked!

  15. Looking at this photo, I would never guess it was made in a crockpot. Heading over to see the recipe right this minute!

  16. That’s amazing for a slow cooker!! I would’ve expected it to be far mushier. 🙂

  17. What a great idea!! Looks like a great lasagna recipe. I am going to have to try this one this weekend.
    I am going to cook it for the family. Thanks

  18. I made a slightly lightened-up version of this (low-fat cheese, whole wheat noodles & ground turkey) and it was DELISH! Thanks for the inspiration- gave you a shout out on my blog 🙂

  19. Do you beat the egg first before adding it to the ricotta mixture???

  20. @Rena,
    It’s not necessary to beat the egg first. But I’m lazy! It wouldn’t hurt to give it a little whisk but it’s not required if you stir the ricotta mixture thoroughly.

  21. This recipe was great. The sauce was very yummy and there was a lot of it. I just found that there wasn’t enough lasagna noodles. It was a hit at our table tonight!

  22. This was fabulous. The cook time was spot on. But…it sure didn’t look as pretty as the piece in the picture! I don’t know how to fit rectangle shaped noodles into a round crock pot and still make it look this good.

  23. This sounds amazing! I really appreciate all the great recipes, and these crock pot recipes should make my life a lot easier! 🙂

  24. I’ve tried to make lasagna before but it didn’t come out this well. This was tasty and easy to make. Not having to boil the noodles really did help cut down on the prep time and clean up.

  25. This was super easy and tasted excellent.
    I didn’t change anything, except for being generous with the cheese, and I used kamut lasagne.
    Thank you so much for sharing, this is a quick and simple meal when you have people over for dinner.
    I actually doubt I will make lasagne outside of the slow cooker ever again!

  26. I’m cooking mine now. I added chopped spinach to the ricotta….can’t wait for dinner!

  27. SO Good! Easy to throw together and just let cook on a cold, rainy day here. Thanks for the recipe, will definately be making again!!

  28. I made this recipe more or less exactly, I used my new 8 quart crockpot. It cooked in about 3 hours on low and turned out delicious. My picky eater even liked it. Will definitely make again and share the recipe with other friends with crockpots.

  29. Hi! This looks delish. Did u use reg lasagna noodles or the new no-boil ones? Thnx!!

  30. I have never made lasagna before because all the dishes! BUT When I found this recipe I decided to give it a try and I’m in a shock!!! It is the easiest recipe I’ve ever made!!!! THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

  31. I love making lasagna, but hate how long it takes. But i came across your recipe a couple of weeks ago and gave it a shot. OMG! It was wonderful!!! I will never make lasagna the traditional way. Thank you so much!

  32. I found this recipe about a year ago and have been loving it (and others) since then. It’s in the crockpot ready to go tonight. Everyone loves it and most ask for the recipe which I happily share.
    Thanks for all your hard work in making these delicious recipes available for us.

  33. Just made this today, followed the recipe to the letter and it was DELICIOUS! My family loved it.

  34. Loved the concept of this recipe, but it turned my gluten free pasta into paste. : (
