Convenient no-cook lasagna noodles take the work out of this traditional favorite adapted for the slow cooker. Because it's so easy to assemble, it's great for workdays as well as weekends. We like it accompanied by Parmesan bread or garlic cheese toast. —Lisa Micheletti
"I enjoy preparing this meatless casserole for my family," relates Francine Scott of DeLand, Florida. "They love its creamy texture and think they're eating an extremely rich dish when in fact it's good for them."
Sausage and sauerkraut are a palate-pleasing pair, especially in lasagna. My family was a little skeptical when I first served this unusual dish. But in no time, they were clamoring for second helpings.

My family first tasted this rich, classic lasagna at a friend's home on Christmas Eve. We were so impressed that it became our own holiday tradition as well. I also prepare it other times of the year. It's requested often by my sister's Italian in-laws—I consider that the highest compliment! —Lorri Foockle, Granville, Illinois
This saucy lasagna is my adaptation of a chicken enchilada recipe. My husband and I enjoy the mild blend of seasonings, cheeses and tender chicken. The dish has become very popular with my co-workers after I shared leftovers one day for lunch. -Cindee Rolston, St. Marys, West Virginia
I came up with this "short-cut" lasagna one day when the dinner hour was fast approaching and all I had in the freezer was some frozen ravioli. Now I make it often, and my husband and son devour it.

My sister-in-law served this special dish for Easter breakfast one year, and our whole family loved the mix of bacon, eggs, noodles and cheese. Now I sometimes assemble it the night before and bake it in the morning for a terrific hassle-free brunch entree.
