This recipe deserves 5 stars for flavor & overall yumminess. However, it loses a star due to the fact that it really is not any easier than making traditional lasagna. The next time I will just bake this in the oven. When I choose slow cooker recipes, usually time is of the essence. The prep time for this lasagna is equivalent to the prep time for an oven-baked lasagna. Therefore, this recipe is pointless for the slow-cooker in my opinion. Some helpful pointers: 1) If you do make this in your slow cooker, make sure your top layer is sauce. If your top layer is noodles, or cheese w/ noodles underneath, then your noodles will be dry & chewy. 2) If you prefer your lasagna with ricotta cheese, then by all means substitute the ricotta for the cottage cheese. I made this w/ ricotta b/c that it what I prefer, and I was pleased w/ it. 3) If you are looking at this recipe & wondering if the 1 1/2 tsp of salt is necessary, it is not. I substituted a salt free seasoning (there is one on this website), and the flavor was still amazing...with a little less sodium.
