Just tried it. Awesome reviews from everyone here! Added a can of Italian style diced tomatoes to the Progresso sauce and cream cheese, chopped spinach, and an egg to the ricotta cheese mixture. Fantastic and super easy

I grew up having Italian relatives that moved to the United States "from the old country" so I was raised eating traditional Italian foods that were made entirely from scratch and I got rather spoiled. I've thus far made this recipe twice. The first time I made it as instructed but it didn't have an authentic Italian flavor so I made a few changes to this recipe to make it better. I made this using our 7 qt. slow cooker, incidentally.
(1) I used a 45 oz. jar of Prego Super Mushroom pasta sauce because of its authentic Italian flavor
(2) I used a large container of whole milk Ricotta Cheese

Used tomato sauce, spiced up lots. Don't double the noodles, gooey, doughy. Added can of progresso tomato bisque as everyone said it needed more liquid. Added extra ricotta, and Yum. Hubby had 3 helpings and he hates everything. So this is a success! I just used what was on hand. Better the second day. 3 1/2 stars for the adjustments needed.

Wow! I have never made lasagna in slow cook. Totally easy, and still quite yummy. Whole family loved it! Was wonderful with italian turk sausage. One trick i use is mix one beaten egg in with cheese mixture and it is fluffy.

Did not like it at all in its current form. Needed extra sauce, water, and seasonings. Will make slow cooker lasagna again but not in this form.

love slow cooker lasagna! i double it and add about a half cup of water to the sauce and let it cook on low for about 5 hours. been making it for years but just tried it with Progresso roasted tomato cooking sauce. good flavor for my guys, not too spicy but i added a can of diced tomatoes with basil & garlic. try it with one layer of cream cheese mixed with a half cup of shredded Parmesan instead of ricotta. throw in a loaf of French bread and it's a great take-along meal when tail gating or to the kids ball games!

Tried this today but wasn't at all impressed. Really dry. Should have tried adding spaghetti sauce. Not much flavor to it if you just follow the recipe. Won't be making this again.

My family absolutely loved this! I made a few adjustments using a mixture of sausage and hamburger meat and adding diced onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Could have used a little more sauce. Already getting requests to make this again!

I made this twice... I used a ground meat, not sausage... only thing is you have to watch the sides at you can burn the noodles (which go in uncooked) I think i am going to cook it for a shorter time., Also, I added extra cheese, as we like it that way. Also did a ziti, but that too, the noodles all of a sudden get cooked. Check them often.

I decided to follow everyone else's review, and only cook it for 2 hours on low. I made it in the morning, then had my boyfriend just plug it in and turn it on since he was home during the afternoon. I also substituted bison meat for the sausage, and added garlic and herbs to the ricotta mixture. It turned out really tasty, but it was't really hot, just luke warm. I liked it overall and give it thumbs up, but there's no advantage to making it in the crockpot.
