“Lasagna’s always been a family favorite," explains Catherine Yoder of New Paris, Indiana. "But since my children and husband aren’t very fond of some veggies, I started ‘sneaking’ them into this dish and they hardly notice! It feeds a crowd and is great for potlucks or family reunions.”
Since I was a child knew my passion was to cook and I would invent new dishes. I sampled a lasagna at a local restaurant in Venezuela and I re-created at home. My father fell in love with the rich, creamy layer that complimented the tomato meat sauce in my pasticho.—
A friend showed me how to make stacked enchiladas years ago. I took it even further to create this filling casserole. I serve it with Mexican corn or chips and dip. I love the rave reviews I get every time I make it.—Deana Briggs, Maud, Texas

Lasagna is a popular holiday meal, but it's hard to find time to put it together. This slow cooker version will allow you to enjoy time with your family and still put an elegant dinner on the table. —Kathryn Conrad, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Cheese really stars in this lasagna, which I created a few years ago. It can be prepared ahead of time and baked later. I sometimes make up a couple batches and freeze them in case company drops by.

I like this recipe because it can be prepared a day ahead and baked just before serving, so it's a great way to avoid that last-minute rush when attending a potluck. Using packaged spaghetti sauce and noodles that are not pre-boiled makes preparation especially quick. —Denise Goedeken

I'm an old-fashioned country cook and love preparing recipes like this one that uses staples I normally keep on hand. Unlike most lasagnas, this one doesn't call for precooking the noodles. It's so simple my children sometimes make it after school and have it ready when I get home from work.
