crockpot lasagna recipe (gluten free)

crockpot lasagna recipe made so easy you’ll never again want to make it in a pan. made with your favorite lasagna noodles with zero pre-cooking of noodles required! {gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian friendly options}

I’m in a crockpot lasagna mood. I think it’s safe to say I’m in a lasagna mood these past couple weeks. You ok with that? Good.

This Crockpot Lasagna recipe is JUST as tasty as our sweet potato Mexican lasagna, but it’s even better for one reason: It’s made in my favorite kitchen appliance everrrrrr–the crockpot!

No pan, no pre-cooking of noodles, and none of that extra work. Woot woot.

R loves lasagna. Actually, that is an understatement, R is absolutely obsessed with lasagna. I think it correlates with my obsession with Mexican food and potatoes.

I’m perfectly able to eat them for weeks without getting bored. And that’s how R is with lasagna.

So needless to say, when we had to go gluten-free in our household, he was missing out on his best-friends-forever-food. That was, until our local store stocked these gluten-free lasagna noodles!

I kid you not, after that discovery, we had lasagna for weeks on end. Pretty similar to our Mexican Lasagna binge earlier this month.

Surprisingly, we are not sick of either. Bring it on.

TIP: If sauce is a little thick, add about 1/4-1/2 cup water to help keep the noodles on the bottom from burning.

Adding the water will prevent burning, but the bottom of the lasagna still gets a little crispy. You like those corner pieces on the lasagna pan? Then this is for you.

I’m personally a center-of-the-pan, no-crispy-edges kind of gal myself. R was tickled pink when he got a crispy corner. To each his own. 😉
