Ground Beef Spinach Alfredo Lasagna Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

I used a 6 qt round crock pot, it worked out well. Cooked for 5 hours, might only do 4 1/2 hours next time. Will add more garlic next time and going to mix in some of the italian cheese. My husband had seconds, that says a lot! Delish

To freemason and anyone else flipping out at the nutritional values-find another recipe or make substitutions.

I weigh 109 lbs soaking wet, great BP, cholesterol, etc. At 75 plus years I eat meals like this in moderation and enjoy every darn bite without quilt. This is a great, easy recipe. However, I cut the amounts the second time I made it because it overflows my 5 qt. crock pot. Incidently, it freezes well!
