I love my crockpot and I love experimenting with new dishes. Recently I decided to try my hand at cooking lasagna in the crockpot. Check this out.


  • 1 box no-bake lasagna noodles
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef (cooked)
  • 1x 32 ounce container ricotta cheese
  • 1x 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
  • 12-16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

NOTE on the tomatoes or tomato sauce. I really like using the basil-garlic-oregano for this, then I don’t need any other seasonings.


Brown your ground beef.

While the ground beef is browning, put a layer of sauce in the bottom of the crockpot

Drain the ground beef and mix it together with about 8 ounces of the shredded mozzarella.

Crockpot Lasagna Sauce Base

Place a layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles in the crockpot. You’ll probably need to break them to make them cover the bottom and fit.

Place half of the meat/mozzarella mixture on top of the noodles.

Place a second layer of noodles in the crockpot.

Place the ricotta cheese on top of the noodles.

Crockpot Lasagna Layer

Place a third layer of noodles in the crockpot.

Place a thin layer of sauce on the noodles.

Place the remainder of the meat/mozzarella mixture on top of the noodles.

Place a fourth and final layer of noodles in the crockpot.

Spread the remainder of the sauce over the top. Make sure all pasta is covered with sauce.

Sprinkle the remaining shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.

Crockpot Lasagna Uncooked

Cook for 4-5 hours.

Crockpot Lasagna Finished In Pot

I like to let this sit for 15 minutes or so before cutting.

A piece will look like this.

This is delicious. It has a whole different taste than lasagna cooked in the oven, even though you might be making it with the same ingredients.

I have never made lasagna, mainly because I’m not really a fan. My husbands likes it though and this recipe is simple enough that I think I’ll try it. Thanks for sharing!

Actually it comes out quite easily, with a large spoon or spatula.

I had no idea that the crockpot could be so versitile—this looks delicious. I wonder if it would work as well with veggie lasagna?

Can’t wait to give this one a try. I might put a crockpot liner in it. Then I could just lift it out without worrying about it falling apart.

It is EX-CEP-TIONAL! I’ve used the identical ingredients that I use in my oven lasagna and it’s a whole different taste. Delish!
