That time I burned crockpot lasagna

I love making stuff in the crockpot because it’s a great way to get a home cooked meal without all the fuss.  That was until I decided I was going to make crockpot lasagna. I was intrigued when I was fell down the rabbit hole of Pinterest and found a crock pot veggie lasagna recipe.

The great thing about the crockpot is setting and forgetting, but this time I feel like it was a little too much work. I was highly skeptical on Sunday while I was making this. I even posted on Instagram stories I wasn’t sure I would be making this again. It really depended on the final product.

I had to cook the spinach because I didn’t want the liquid from the spinach ruining the pot.  And I had to cook the meat because I thought that was the appropriate thing to do.  I am super picky about the way my meat looks and I wasn’t sure about putting ground turkey straight into the crockpot.  If it doesn’t look right, I won’t eat it.  And then making the layers was a bit time-consuming. (Maybe because we have a gigantic crockpot.)


So what’s my final verdict? I LOVED IT. I’ve been eating it all week long. I will most definitely make it again. The one thing I would do different is not cooking it so long. There were parts of it that were burned from the crockpot. It was delicious, though. I was skeptical about the noodles not cooking and that’s not really something you know until you cut it open. But it was cooked all the way.

It was so delicious I’m thinking about how I can tweak the recipe a bit. I’m thinking I might try sweet potatoes instead of the lasagna noodles. But I don’t know yet. I may have been a lot of work on the front end, but it turned out pretty well.
