Not for slow cookers
by: Anonymous

I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS IS MADE IN A SLOW COOKER. I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY AND IT WAS DONE IN 1 1/2 HOURS. IF I WOULD OF LEFT IN ON FOR THE 4 TO 6 HOURS IT WOULD HAVE BURNT. IT WAS GOOD BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE EASIER TO PUT IN A CASSEROLE DISH AND COOK FOR 30-45 MINUTES.

Goat cheese in this recipe
by: Anonymous

Where do you use 5 cups of goat cheese in this recipe? It is listed on the grocery list but I can't find its inclusion anywhere. I love it and don't want to leave it out if it is a part of the lasagne.

I would definately make this again!
by: Crystal

This was realy easy and tasted great. I actually liked it better than a regular lasagna recipe because it makes a smaller portion. I layered it as follows: 1 cup meat sauce then 2 noodles broken to fit, then 1/2 of the cheese mixture, then 2 cups of sauce, the 2 more noodles broken to fit, then the rest of the cheese mixture, then the last 2 noodles broken to fit, then the rest of the sauce.
