Slow Cooker Lasagna
Very Good 4.2/5
(375 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Ryan loved it! Very quick and easy- definitely like making this over the regular lasagna because you don't have to cook the noodles. Didn't use the egg white and it turned out fine, but it might help bind the cheeses together.

Cookbook creator says: Ryan isn't a big fan of the crust of a chicken pot pie so I didn't make for us, but should try making a few and freezing for just me.
