Have you ever made lasagna — in a slow cooker? I recently found a recipe for Crockpot Lasagna, a few weeks ago when I was searching for weekly recipe ideas. I found a site with tons of crockpot recipes, and this was one that intrigued me: I love using the crockpot and I love lasagna – how cool to merge the two!
I followed the recipe pretty closely (although I don’t have sea salt, and also I subbed a different type of noodle for lasagna noodles; it just seemed wrong somehow to break up lasagna noodles so they would fit). Here it is, ready to go:
On a side note, don’t you love my ’80s country blue crockpot interior? I’ve probably had my crockpot since I first began cooking on my own in the ’80s. I never gave it much thought until a few years ago when I volunteered to bring a crockpot of something to one of the kids’ schools. I was amazed at all the stainless steel, fancy schmancy crockpots in there – mine looked quite old fashioned (or perhaps it’s jazzier to say “retro”) in comparison.
But, in keeping with my conservative and frugal nature, I see no need to replace my crockpot: it’s served me well all these years, so why discard a good thing? Do I really need it sitting in a landfill just so I can have a shiny new one with a timer (which I’d never use anyway)? I think not.
