  • Generally, pasta does not hold its shape well during slow cooking. However, no-boil lasagna noodles are an exception and pair perfectly with this lasagna’s creamy sauce!

More About This Recipe
  • Lasagna that only requires seven ingredients and can be made in the slow cooker? Where do we sign up? No-boil lasagna noodles make it all possible. No-boil noodles can be found in the same aisle as regular lasagna noodles at the grocery store. The reason they are able to cook without having to spend a few minutes in boiling hot water is because they get moisture from the pasta sauce so they can cook during the baking process. That’s why this slow-cooker lasagna calls for both a tomato-based sauce and an Alfredo pasta sauce, which we have no complaints about! There’s much more to learn about how to master a lasagna recipe that you’ll make again and again. If you haven’t already, read our easy step-by-step on how to foolproof your lasagna recipe.
