So there has a been a really yummy recipe going around on Pinterest for Crock Pot Lasagna. It enticed me to try it. We like lasagna. Well, scratch that, we like pasta in general. I try not to eat a lot of carbs, but we do indulge every once in a while on them. Here is the pic floating around on Pinterest:
Well, it is one of several pics I have seen. Here is the link for the recipe: http://www.creatingthroughlife.com/2011/10/crock-pot-lasagna.html
Overall, it was a super easy recipe. I made it all up, put it in the refrigerator to cook the next day while we were at work. I know the directions say to cook for 4-5 hours on low. Well, we are gone for longer than that at work. I figured it would not be a big deal. It was 😦
The lasagna was over cooked, but not past the point of not being edible. We again threw out the extras. I would repeat this recipe, but only if only have 4 hours to cook it. At that point though, I may as well just cook it in the oven. It was a lot of prep to cook it in the crock pot. I will give it a shot with this recipe, but in the oven.
This recipe made me wonder if I could get a time for my crock pot (to have it turn on at a certain time). I know there Crock Pots that have a timer already, but when I have a perfectly fine, usable one, I can’t justify the cost. My next one will have a timer (and a locking lid for that matter).
