Cheesy Slow Cooker Lasagna

Making this one change make such a difference! Less work and it tastes amazing!

We love all different types of food, but pasta – any kind, we love it all – is our go-to. Of all the different possibilities (dare we say pastabilities?), lasagna is the one that we crave most frequently, but we don’t make it too often considering how much work is involved. We’ve made slow cooker lasagna before using lasagna noodles, but that still meant having to make a filling to go between the layers…this time around we decide to make things even easier and even better!

Instead of using lasagna noodles and making a from-scratch filling, use refrigerated ravioli instead! Feel free to use any type of stuffed ravioli – we like using ricotta and spinach-stuffed ones – then start layering up your slow cooker with ground beef, tomato sauce and ravioli turn the slow cooker on, then come back in a couple of hours and dig into a delicious lasagna-ravioli dinner that everyone will love! Trust us, you might not go back to the traditional version after trying this one….

Recipe Summary

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 4 cups torn baby spinach (about 4 ounces)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups cabernet marinara or tomato-and-basil marinara (such as Muir Glen)
  • 1 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce (such as Pomì)
  • 4 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese (about 1/4 cup)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 8 ounces preshredded Italian cheese blend (about 2 cups)
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (8 ounce) package whole-wheat wavy lasagna noodles (about 9 noodles depending on brand)

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add the onion, and cook, stirring often, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic cook, stirring often, 2 minutes. Add the spinach cook until the spinach just begins to wilt, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle the vegetables with 1/8 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Add the marinara and tomato sauce, stirring to combine.

Stir together the ricotta, basil, egg, 1 1/4 cups of the Italian cheese blend, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl.

Coat the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of the marinara mixture into the bottom of the slow cooker. Arrange 3 noodles over the marinara, breaking the noodles to fit the slow cooker as necessary. Top with half of the cheese mixture and 1 cup of the marinara mixture. Repeat the layers once, beginning with the noodles and ending with the marinara mixture. Place the remaining 3 noodles over the marinara. Spread the remaining marinara mixture over the noodles. Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup Italian cheese blend and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Cover and cook on LOW until the noodles are tender, 4 to 5 hours.


What to Serve with Lasagna

There are quite a few different side dishes that you’re able to serve with lasagna. I will quickly mention some of my favorites.

As with any lasagna, this goes great alongside some freshly baked garlic bread. You can bake this in the oven, or use a toaster.

A broad range of salads will work perfectly as a side dish, but I recommend trying to keep to the lighter salads since the lasagna is quite a heavy dish.

You could also do a variety of steamed vegetables to go on the side. Something like broccoli, cauliflower, and snow peas will be delicious alongside this tasty dish.

Of course, there are lots more that go great with this recipe, so if you have a suggestion, be sure to share it with us by leaving a comment below.


Slow Cooker Lasagna + Video!

One of the best parts about food blogging for me is definitely the amazing people that you get to “meet” along the way.

Samantha is the sweetheart over at Five Heart Home where she shares healthy and delicious meals that are quick and easy to make along with fun free printables.

She’s a busy mom of three beautiful kiddos and is super talented and creative. She also just finished writing her first cookbook, Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers that was released yesterday!

I couldn’t be more excited and proud of her because writing a cookbook with small kids and keeping up with a blog along with all those other family responsibilities is seriously no easy task.

Her book is just beautiful and full of 80 delicious slow cooker dinner recipes that call for all real, fresh, unprocessed ingredients.

I loved the variety of cuisines featured and that there was a gorgeous color photo for every single recipe.

This Slow Cooker Lasagna is just one of the awesome dishes you will find in there. Easy crock-pot recipes are my favorite and I loved that this entire recipe was cooked in the slow cooker!

It’s the perfect meal for Meatless Monday and full of gooey layers of cheese and yummy greens in every bite.

I adapted the recipe slightly with what I have and to suit my families tastes and have listed those in the recipe below. Instead of just frozen spinach, I used a mix fresh spinach and kale.



This Slow Cooker Lasagna was seriously SO delicious and a big hit with my family!

Even my hubs who is a big meat-eater couldn’t get enough so you can bet this lasagna will be showing up regularly around here again.

Crockpot casserole dish

    for this one so it has lots of room to bubble up
  • You can use any small noodles but we like these the best
  • 1 jar of pasta sauce (I usually use this meat sauce one)
    • if you only have tomato sauce I would add some Italian seasonings too
    • or spicy Italian sausage

    If you like a wetter consistency just add more spaghetti sauce to this lazy slow cooker lasagna. It is very versatile depending on your preference.


    45+ minutes

    All of the vegetarian recipes you’ll see below take more than 45 minutes to cook – but that doesn’t mean it’s all hands-on time! All of my slow cooker recipes are included here, but the actual prep time is really quick.

    This category also includes oven-baked casseroles, like mushroom bourguignon and vegetarian moussaka – if you want a hearty, comforting bake, you’ve come to the right place.


    Why I Think This Is The Best Lasagne Recipe For Healthy Eating

    My healthy lasagne recipe is made as close to the traditional way with a roux of flour that's blended oats, milk excluding the butter. It thickens the exact same way.

    • It's as close to being an authentic Italian lasagne
    • There are fewer lasagne calories as the roux isn't made with butter
    • You know what's in it
    • It offers 4 large lasagne portions
    • You don't need to buy flour especially as it uses blended oats
    • It's delicious and tastes so much better than a ready meal
    • You could turn it into a courgette lasagne with lengthways slices instead of pasta sheets
    • It's great for batch cooking and leftovers
    • This lasagne bolognese sauce can easily be made into a variety of dishes, sauce a lasagne parmigana with melanzane (AKA aubergine lasagne)
    • You can make it a vegetarian lasagne by swapping beef for a Quorn lasagne

    Frequently Asked Questions

    There is no need to cook the lasagna noodles first. The moisture that the slow cooker creates combined with the sauce, will cook the noodles for you.

    You can absolutely substitute cottage cheese for ricotta cheese in our slow cooker lasagna! Simply replace equal amounts of cottage cheese for the ricotta listed in the recipe.

    If you boil the noodles first, they run the risk of turning mushy in the crockpot. The steam developed during the slow cooker process is all this is needed to cook the lasagna noodles.

    You can assemble the entire lasagna in the slow cooker crock and store it in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours. Bring the crock out of the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature before placing into the slow cooker.

    After making lasagna in the slow cooker, it is best to remove the finished dish and store and leftovers in a separate container with a lid in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze leftover crock pot lasagna by wrapping the cooled dish in plastic wrap and then placing inside a plastic zipper freezer bag or freezer container. You can freeze this lasagna for up to 3 months.

    Our easy lasagna in the crockpot is a delicious set it and forget it recipe for busy weekdays. It’s a family favorite around here!
