With two types of sauces, ground beef, spinach and three kinds of cheese, this dish is super hearty and goes beyond the expected. When serving, be sure to scoop all the way down to the bottom of the slow cooker so that everyone gets a good taste of this many layered meal. —Deborah Bruno, Mira Loma, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2014

This was a quick and easy recipe. I used Italian Turkey Sausage, removed the skin and crumbled it up. I also added more garlic cloves, maybe 8-9 (we love garlic :-) and used fresh spinach instead of frozen. Besides that, I followed the recipe and steps just the way it was written. My husband loved it too! Which says a lot because he doesn't care for red sauce dishes. He gave me two high fives and said this one is a keeper!! I think I need to get a bigger crock pot because my noodles burned on the bottom. I did stuff the crock pot to capacity but it was still delicious!! I will be making this one again. Plenty of lasagna to go around for my family of 5 :-).

Very Tasty! Love the alfredo/mainara combo. My co-workers said this was a "very elegant" lasagna! I followed recipe to a tee,except I baked it in a deep lasagna pan in oven.

This was delicious! Probably the best lasagna I've ever tasted. It was moist and flavorful! First time I made lasagna in a slow cooker and I was surprised how it turned out! I will definitely make this again. And it makes a LOT of servings! Side note: this did not fit in my 5 qt. cooker. I transferred it to my larger one!

Very yummy. However, 8c of cheese is way too much!. I only use 2 as well as light alfredo sauce to cut calories in half
