Slow Cooker Lasagna
We really enjoyed this lasagna - the taste was outstanding - but this came out on the dry side for me. Next time I will add more liquid to the sauce as the noodles need the extra moisture to absorb. I used bulk italian sausage - Johnsonville makes a mild Italian in bulk form that is DELISH and has very little fat to drain. As other reviewers, I did not add any extra salt since I used Rao's Marinara (it's a little pricey but it's the closest thing to a New York Grandma's home-made sauce I have found so it's worth the cost to me). I will also add egg to the ricotta cheese mixture for extra moisture and to make it easier to spread. I put some additional shreddedd mozzarella on top, set it on low and let it cook for 5 hours. When I make it next time I will watch it since I will be adding more moisture. It may need the 5 hours or it might be done in less. I think once you know how to make it in YOUR crockpot with the ingredients you like to use and your custom touches, it will become a "set and forget" meal. It's worth spending your first time or two getting the timing and technique pefected cause making lasagne this way is a whole lot easier than the traditional way without compromising the result.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
Did not have tomato sauce the first time I made this so used Heinz Chili Sauce - amazing and have done it that way ever since. Makes great shrimp tacos - put some crunchy slaw in a tortilla, add shrimp then some avacado and you got a great summer meal!
