Lasagna and Apple Pie

Today with a scary movie marathon going on in the back ground, I made lasagna in the crock pot for the first time. I was a little skeptical at first but it really turned out good. The cheese was melted perfectly and it came out of the crock without sticking.
Just follow your favorite recipe for lasagna. Pour a thin layer of sauce and a touch of olive oil to the bottom of the crock and start your layers with UNCOOKED lasagna noodles. Layer up and cook on high for 3 to 3 and a half hours.

I made an apple pie also but instead of a 'traditional' top crust, I used an apple shaped cookie cutter and layered them on top. Haven't tasted it yet, but it smells wonderful.

The weather here is really cooling off and fall is in full swing. I LOVE it.


  1. Oh my! i wish I lived at YOUR house!

  2. Tony it is fun to make the top crust like that. I've made it that way for years. The pie was AWESOME. This is the first time I had used two different varieties of apples and it does make a difference.

    Thanks Wendy. We don't eat like that all of the time though. LOL The lasagna was meatless and it took awhile for my meat eating husband to realize it. He ate two large helpings so it must not have been too bad.

  3. Yes Christina...I was very skeptical about crock pot lasagna, but it is very good. It would work with any ingredients, just use uncooked noodles.
