I ate some leftovers the next day and the juice had
absorbed and it had a nicer shape. ; ) Not to mention,
I've had a recipe for Slowcooker Lasagna for about 4 years. I've made it a lot and we like it...sort of. I've started really getting tired of it though. I looked around online and ended up making this one myself, using ingredients I had on hand. I love that it's a frugal, but tasty meal for my family and has way more flavor than my old recipe!
April's Slowcooker Spinach Lasagna
Yield: 6 servings
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
16 oz. frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed to remove liquid)
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 clove minced garlic
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup each fresh basil and oregano, chopped
- I have a small slowcooker (though I can't remember the size) and this was about 4" thick! If you have a larger slowcooker, you may need to adjust the cooking time.
- You could easily make this a meatless meal by using veggie spaghetti sauce. My frozen sauce had meat added already.
- I had everything to make this in my refrigerator, pantry and garden, so in essence it was free. But I guesstimated the cost of the ingredients and came up with a total of $10.40 or $1.73 per serving. Not bad!
- This was so good that I'm planning to make it again, but in oven pans and freeze it. If Stouffer's can do it, so can I!
