Crockpot Lasagna

When I started this blog, I was planning on sharing some recipes and I really have only done it once (a long time ago). So, here is a yummy one I found and we just finished eating it (and loving it) so I thought I would share it. For some reason, my past lasagna attempts have been unsatisfactory, so we were pleased with this very much. Instead of typing it, I am just going to provide the link.

Two things about this I will share: 1) I thought it was too heavy on the salt and would reduce it to maybe even not adding any. I think there is plenty in the cheese. I say this as a salt addict. 2) people in the reviews complained that the cooking time was too long and their noodles were a soggy mess. I checked mine after a little over 3 hours and they were perfect, so I think the 4 to 6 hour cooking time is perhaps too much. Oh, I also bought "Italian style"tomato paste on accident, so I only added a dash of oregano. I liked it that way and will use that kind again.

I would definitely follow the rules of lasagna and serve it with a green salad and garlic bread.

So how weird is this? Cam and I are cooking a lasagna at this very moment! We are making it for tomorrow night. Tomorrow is Bunko night for the girls, and the guys are all going to Jeff's house and they are in the mood for homeade Lasagna. Cam voluntered to make it. I made Amy's homeade maranara sauce and we just put the whole thing together and put it in the oven!

That is weird!
One of my lasagna disasters happened while using Amy's sauce. I used leftover and I don't think I had enough -that combined with whole wheat noodles, voided the dinner of all moisture. Bleh! With plenty of sauce though, I'm sure yours turned out yummy.
