Recipe: Easy Crock-pot Zucchini Lasagna

Recipe: Easy Crock-pot Zucchini Lasagna

Who doesn’t love lasagna? Its cheesy goodness is the essence of comfort food in my book. But I don’t really like the work involved in making lasagna… and that’s why I love this recipe. Delicious, full of good-for-you fats, delicious zucchini, and it’s super easy to boot. That’s my kind of recipe.

As far as the lasagna noodles, choose the kind that best fit your food philosophy. Sprouted lasagna noodles are a great option if you can make (or find) them. And if you’re gluten-free you could use rice noodles (like these). Of course if you are dairy intolerant, this may not be your kind of recipe… which is too bad. You may be able to make some good substitutions, but don’t ask me what those are because I’d hate to feel like a traitor to my yummy cheesy friend. Okay?

A note on the ingredients

You could not-so-easily make many of these ingredients your self. Homemade pasta sauce, homemade ricotta cheese, homemade cream cheese, homemade lasagna noodles…. it’s all possible! (And if you click on any of the previous links it will take you to some of my favorite recipes). But doing it all yourself does take out some of the “ease” in this easy crock-pot zucchini lasagna. I’d rather spend that time with my family, but I do make sure to buy the highest quality ingredients… which means READING LABELS. Don’t buy it if you can’t pronounce what’s in it, okay? Okay.

    Looks yummy! I haven’t been making lasagna lately because of the noodles not being traditionally prepared.

      Yeah, this is definitely a “compromise” food we sometimes indulge in. Although you could easily use rice noodles which are easier to digest.

    Hi just want to clarify, are you using the dried lasagne sheets or the fresh ones from the refrigerator section? Would it matter? Looks super yummy!

      I’m using dried. No need to cook them, either. I’m sure you could use fresh lasagna… will probably cook faster, though.
