Slow-Cooker Lasagna

By September 12, 2011 , , ,

As a busy full-time workin' momma, with many times, too much on my plate - I rely on my trusty crock pot for simple, wholesome meals without the hassle of actually physically being in the kitchen. I like it when someone else does all the work once and while.

Case in point - this weekend.

My sweet Baby RayRay was diagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. Sounds pretty scary - well the poor girl - looked terrible ... red rash all over her pretty face, stomach, hands, legs, feet and butt. We took her into the doc on Friday and she gave us a prescription for ointment to zap that ugly rash right off of her cute butt. So because of all of that - we decided to stay home on Saturday - as opposed to infecting other innocent children out in public. And I wanted to focus 100 percent of my attention on Baby RayRay and not in the kitchen! She is sooo much better today (by the way) - thank goodness!

Anyways, I've seen tons of crock pot recipes floating around the blogosphere lately - so I decided to post at least one of my own. This Slow-Cooker Lasagna recipe I actually picked up from Farm World Newspaper. And for those of you who don't know me outside of my Hoosier Farm Babe bloggyness - Farm World is where I pick up my bacon. Let me restate that ... I bring home the bacon from Farm World. It's where I've worked as associate editor for nearly 5 years. Holy smoke - time flies! Over the years of workdom, I've picked up some great recipes from our Home and Family section and this is just one example. Hope you enjoy it! One thing I liked about this Slow-Cooker Lasagna recipe is there is no layering!

Without further ado, the recipe ....
