Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe

Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe

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 Collierville, Tennessee
