Slow Cooker Lasagna

Slow Cooker Lasagna

This easy lasagna recipe is one we made frequently for church potlucks when I (Jill) was growing up. I made it this past Saturday night, then turned it to warm until we were ready to eat after church. The whole family loved it (although I didn’t tell Israel there were mushrooms in it and had to hide them a little in each bite. lol). If you or your kids don’t like mushrooms, feel free to omit.

Serves 8-10

2 lbs. ground beef (or turkey)

1 T. Italian seasoning

2 (24oz.) cans spaghetti sauce

2 (4 oz.) cans sliced mushrooms, drained

3/4 cup water

1 lb. Lasagna noodles

1 (24 oz.) container cottage cheese (or ricotta cheese)

4 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

Grease 5 quart slow cooker. Cook beef & Italian seasoning, drain. Combine spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, cooked meat and water in bowl. Layer thinly: sauce mixture, 4-5 broken, uncooked noodles, cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese. Repeat 3-4 times. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Note: This is an easy recipe to make the night before and store in the fridge, then start the next morning in the slow cooker.

    You get loads of criticism for amount of canned goods you use in your recipes, and that is not ok. I think its refreshing to see easy, quick, real life recipes. Not every one has time to keep the house and tend the garden and, prep ahead pasta sauce, cream of soups, fresh veggies, butcher their own beef, pork, and chicken while keeping up with two kids, run a blog, run errands, and sleep and breath…… if anyone has figured out how to do that please, teach us the ways, otherwise please keep the negative to yourself. You keep rocking these easy as pie recipes I appreciate them.

    Jill, my husby is the best in the world!
    Thank you for this super easy lasagna recipe. I really appreciate you taking time out of your homemaking to bless us with your recipes.
    I hope Derick will write another Life Matters post sometime in the future. They have been very encouraging.

    Hi Jill,

    I just wanted to say thank you for posting your family’s recipes. They are delicious, economical and they go a long way. My husband has ALS and sometimes we are too tired to figure out what to make, or take a huge amount of time to make it. Your recipes have saved us time and money on more than one occasion. Thank you, thank you, Jill!

    This has now become one of our family favorites. In fact, I made 4 crockpots full of it once for a baby shower. So easy and delicious! I always tell everyone “It’s Duggar Lasagna!”

    • Derick & Jill

      Aww. Glad you enjoy it!

    This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it. Is it possible for you to add a “print” button to your blog? That way we can print the recipes out to store in books. Thank you Jill, you’re doing a great job!!
