First off,I am a crockpot novice but tried this because my husband wouldn't eat vegetable lasagna and I was determined to use our new crockpot! Five doubting adults later there is not even a hint of lasagna for leftovers,and several requests for the recipe! Scanned many of the comments for the always helpful suggestions and did the following in my oval five quart pot: a little sauce after I sprayed with a nonstick olive oil;two full noodles laid across and about a quarter noodle on either side of the two. I had "frosted" each noodle with a mix of a 15oz. container of Italian ricotta,1 egg, and a half cup each of freshly shredded mozzarella and parmesan,threw in Italian seasoning mix and garlic powder,to taste. Then a layer of meat sauce,made from the two jars of sauce and a combo of a half pound of Jimmy Dean spicy sausage and a half pound of lean ground beef. Continued layering my frosted noodles with the meat sauce until ending with the last of the sauce,didn't even fill pot,so you could easily make recipe larger. Cooked on low three hours and forgot to top with the additional cheese in the last five minutes,that would have been even yummier! I used the cheapest sauce on sale at the grocery,basil garlic flavored,and my only other spices were what I added to the ricotta mixture. Used a slotted spoon to plate and everyone got a nice presentation of layers! Will tweak with other add ins and spices but can already highly recommend this one,it's a keeper!
