This is a classic Italian recipe. Everyone LOVES lasagna, right? Well I don’t love having to keep an eye on it in the oven when it is baking. I’m always dealing with over or under cooked noodles, burnt cheese, etc.

This is another horizontal image that shows the lasagna served in a bowl, ready to be enjoyed.

By making the lasagna in the slow cooker we remove a lot of that stress and pressure. The lasagna stays moist, perfectly cooked, and bubbly without burning!

Pro Tip: If you hate cleanup as much as I do, use a Crockpot liner for this recipe. It helps keep any stuck on cheese or noodles from being a problem later on!

You can find the full list of ingredients, measurements, and nutritional info at the bottom of the post! Check out the serving size information as well. You can adjust yours as needed if you are using a smaller or larger Crockpot, just cut the recipe in half or double it!

This is another look at the lasagna in the slow cooker served in a bowl, with a fork ready to be eaten.

We will be using both ground sausage and ground beef. The cheeses we’ll need are ricotta, cottage cheese, shredded mozzarella, and shredded parmesan.

I like to use no cook lasagna noodles, you can use regular ones if you want, you may just need to add more liquid. We’ll also be using Italian seasonings, salt and pepper, and some jarred pasta sauce.

How to make slow cooker lasagna:

In a small mixing bowl combine the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and set aside. In a separate bowl mix the ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, Italian seasonings, salt, and pepper and set aside. 

Add ground beef and sausage into a bowl and mix in one jar of the pasta sauce.

Spray the slow cooker insert with cooking oil. Spread ½ of the remaining jar of pasta sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker. Add 3 of the lasagna noodles on top of the sauce.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture on top of the noodles.

Spread 1/3 of the meat sauce on top of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle 1 cup of the shredded cheese mixture on top of the meat sauce. Repeat the layering two more times.

Secure the lid of the slow cooker and cook on low for 3-4 hours. 

With 15 minutes left of cook time, remove the slow cooker lid, and sprinkle the rest of the cheese. Replace lid and cook on low for 15 minutes, or until cheese melts.

This recipe will serve about 8 people! If you need less you can always freeze the leftovers or you can just cut the recipe in half and use a smaller Crockpot if you like!
