I haven't made it yet, but will give it a try. Sounds great.
Don't forget, there are liners for your slow cookers that you put in prior to adding ingredients and after dinner just lift out and toss. They are located in the grocery section where foil and bags, etc are.

I used 1 lb each of sausage and gr.beef. I used 1 tsp ea. of basil and oregano and 1/4 cp of grated parm that I mixed into the ricotta with 1 tbsp of parsley.
* spray the edges of the crock LIGHTLY or rub with small amt of oil. Cook only 2 Hours. I like a crispy edge so I put it in the ove n to crisp a little before I served but Ifelt that defeated the purpose of using a crock. Lastly I used prepared sauce in a jar. Cans are too metallic and acidic. but, your choice. Mine was delish...Even better the next day. Next time using veggies. B

May want to only cook 2-3 hours instead of the time recommended. I used onion powder instead of onions for the picky eaters and I added a little oregano too! I may try using a pound of sausage and a pound of ground beef next time. It could have been a little meater in my opinion!

I read the reviews before I made it. I took the advice of only cooking it for about 2 hours. My slow cooker was turned off due to a flipped breaker about 1.5 hours into it and I didn't realize it right a way. I turned it back on and cooked it until I thought it had been cooked for almost 2 hours. The noodles turned out a little gummy, but it was STILL really good! I think it would have been perfect if if the cooker had not cut off! I did not find it to be dry like some others did and I did not add sauce. My pickest eater ate a large helping cleaning her plate calling it yummy!

I won't make this recipe again. It burned to the pot (I didn't think you could do that in a slow cooker!) and the grated parmesan overpowered everything. It was very dry, even though the noodles were done perfectly. I don't recommend this recipe.

accidentally clicked 3 stars, meant to hit one. This was totally GROSS! My noodles were gooey and sticky and ick! Couldn't eat it.

I made this last week and in my Crock Pot, it was done in 2 hours. I was able to hold it on "keep warm" for the 2 more hours I needed before my friends came for dinner. And I had made 1/2 more than this. But it is wonderful. Does not come out layered but yummy anyway.

This was my first time ever making lasagna and it was fantastic! My husband loved it as well. I added a teaspoon of oregano, sprinkled some minced garlic on each layer, and I used at least a cup of chopped onions. Also, my slow cooker is only a five quart, but it still came out fine...probably just a little more "deep dish" style. I was running short on time, so I cooked it on high for just over an hour, then on low for another two and a half hours and it came out just right. I will definitely make this again.

Second time doing this recipe. Both times followed exactly, but added some sort of veggie. This a recipe you really can't go wrong with.....suprised me that lasagna could taste that good coming from a crockpot!
