Ground Beef Spinach Alfredo Lasagna
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 4 hours
Family loved it. It was a challenge to remove from the crock pot. Definitely easy to put together.
I dont understand why anyone would want to make lasagna in a crockpot? Why have to dig down deep when you can put it in a 13x9 pan and make nice squares? No advantage to slow cooking it.
I am so surprised by the rave reviews on this one. I made it & thought it was OK. Everyone in my family ate it OK, but none of us thought it was exceptional. I will say I make a regular lasagna that my family, friends & extended family seem to rave about & always request, so it is possible we were jaded by that. It was a lot of ingredients (even cost-wise), easy enough to put together, but didn't even make a huge amount. My alfredo sauce didn't thicken up till it started to cool on my plate & it just made it a sloppy mess. I also think it is VERY difficult to get a good tasting, jarred alfredo sauce. They all have a very fake taste to them. This one was not a keeper for our family.
I made this for the first time some months back for a company potluck. Instant success. Makes a huge quantity, and yet there wasn't even a taste leftover! We're having another potluck this week, and I was given a choice of one item to bring: this lasagna! So delicious and such a hit - you can't go wrong bringing this to any gathering :-)
This lasagna is absolutely yummy. While remodeling and without a stove, I came across this recipe. I don't care if I never use my stove again. Definitely a keeper, and has been passed on to friend.
Was really good. But 4 cups of cheese is plenty. Didn't have very many leftovers!
Yummy! :-) made it in a pan. Delish. Its a treat...not an everyday meal.
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!
How do you get the lasagna out of slow cooker with the layers intact?
