An Italian classic, with plenty of meat and cheese, is surprisingly easy and delicious prepared in a slow-cooker.
Updated Dec 7, 2015

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) Italian-style tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 container (15 oz) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (12 oz)
  • 12 uncooked lasagna noodles

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, basil and salt.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese.
  • 3
    Into 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker, spoon 1/4 of the sausage mixture. Top with 4 noodles, broken into pieces to fit. Top with half of the cheese mixture and 1/4 of the sausage mixture. Top with 4 noodles, remaining cheese mixture and 1/4 of the sausage mixture. Top with remaining 4 noodles and remaining sausage mixture.

    About 10 minutes before serving, sprinkle top of lasagna with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover; let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut lasagna into pieces.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Love your lasagna thick and meaty? For thick pieces of lasagna, use a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. A larger slow cooker will also work, but your lasagna pieces will be a bit thinner.
  • tip 2
    Caesar salad and Italian bread make nice accompaniments to this delicious lasagna.
