Lazy Lasagna {Slow Cooker Recipe} | @JudyHoch

Welcome to another day of Five-Star Slow Cooker Recipes, a ten-day series featuring slow cooker recipes that are simple enough for weeknight meals but delicious enough to serve company!

Today I’m sharing my recipe for Lazy Lasagna, a family-friendly meal that always gets rave reviews at my house. This version takes only about 15 minutes to put together, but it tastes just as special as the oven-baked versions do.
