Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna is a huge hit in our house. We are a very busy crew so when I can talk the slow cooker into cooking anything for me, I’m all for it. This great slow cooker lasagna recipe is made just for families such as ours. Kids love pasta and lasagna is a good way to get them to eat tomatoes if they normally turn their nose up at the red love apple.

We are proponents of growing your own spices and tomatoes. If you have the space and just a little spare time, you can have fresh tomatoes and spices to use in your lasagna and other recipes. Your kids will even think they taste good if they helped grow them. Can’t you smell it now?
