Hearty 10 Layer Crockpot Lasagna Recipes

Something you might have noticed about lasagna is that it is usually square or rectangular, and lasagna noodles are also rectangular, but what about crockpots? A lot of crockpots are round, although some people choose oval ones since they can cook a whole chicken in there. If you are using a crockpot to cook lasagna though, you can simply break the lasagna noodles up and overlap them to fit the crockpot. This makes no difference to the finished lasagna.

You can cut some portions into squares but the rest will have rounded edges, which does not detract from the lasagna at all. In fact it gives it a charming homemade look. The following recipe features pasta sauce and you can use your favorite pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce from a jar or you can make your own.

The recipe also features ground beef so if you are using a sauce which contains beef you can omit this ingredient or use less. This recipe features ten layers of lasagna noodles, since some people like a lot of pasta in their lasagna. You can have as many or as few layers as you like though, so if you only want five or you fancy twenty, go for it!

This picture looks good enough to make your mouth water. You do not have to garnish the finished dish with a pickled chili pepper like in the picture, or even with the tomatoes, but they do add color and freshness. This delicious lasagna recipe is ideal for those who love plenty of pasta and plenty of meat. You could add some vegetables to this meaty, cheesy lasagna, or you could just focus on the hearty meat sauce and the wonderful layers of perfectly cooked lasagna noodles. Serve this alone or with a salad or garlic bread. It is pretty good reheated for lunch the following day too.
