Cooked this last night, subbing 29 oz. canned tomatoes for sauce. The lasagna was so delicious. I was surprised at the good taste and the ease of this dish.

Made this today and used jarred spaghetti sauce, ricotta, and the cottage cheese. It turned out quite tasty, although not the perfect squares that lasagna in a pan gives you. Much quicker to put together. I did rim the slow cooker with aluminum foil to keep the edges from drying out as others suggested and it worked out fine.

I took this in for a work luncheon and everyone really enjoyed it. I did use half ricotta and half cottage cheese for the cheese blend. I always make that combo when making lasagna. It’s something my mom always did growing up and I feel makes a big different with the flavor

always a hit. I like to make a double batch and use half ricotta and half cottage cheese. My husband like me to add ground italian sausage in.

I have been making this for years. It is always a hit. I make it for pot luck dinners too and I never have left overs!!! I use regular Lasagna noodles though instead of the no cook lasagna and it turns out great. It's so easy and frees up my day to get other things done. Everyone things I work for hours over making it. The left overs freeze great. I was pleasantly surprises at that.

Excellent recipe and easy to put together. Like others, I used Italian sausage instead of beef (taste preference), otherwise made as is. Thank you!
