Prep Time: 20 minutes

I hope you like my slow cooker lasagna recipe. If you are looking for a more traditional oven-baked recipe. I found this one for you. Her recipe looks delish, but a whole lot more work if you ask me.

I will stick to throwing it all in a slow cooker or my Instant Pot! Oh yes, I did! I made a similar recipe that you can make faster in the Instant Pot. These are both really good recipes. I think somehow the slow cooker recipe tastes better and is less work technically. However, the Instant Pot lasagna recipe is good when you don’t have 6 hours to let the food cook!

I’d love To Know what you think!… Leave me a comment!

  1. Hey there, fellow homeschooler! This is my first visit to your blog. This lasagne looks so satisfying. I’ve made something similar in the crockpot for my hubby using regular lasagne noodles (not pre-cooked), and it comes out fine. I need to break out the crockpot so the kitchen doesn’t get heated up.

    1. So happy that you came by. That is interesting about the noodles. I will have to try regualar ones too, to see if it works for me. Thanks for the great tip. I have been using my slow cooker a lot here lately. It has been a lifesaver on time for me. Thanks for stopping by Daisy!

  2. This looks wonderful!! And perfect for my family this fall. I husband and kiddos are so used to me cooking big meals made from scratch, but I am a pre-med student with only 3 semesters left so my weekdays are in full-blown crazy mode right now, so slow cooker meals are going to save me! Thanks so for sharing. I will add this to my list.

    1. Thank you so much Miranda! Being a mom is a crazy busy life, but add being a pre-med student and that is just insane! I wish you the best of luck on your journey! I really hope your family loves this Lasagna slow cooker recipe!
