I tried the great “slow cooker lasagna” experiment last week for my family, thinking that it would be fun to try but not something I would actually do in the future. Scratch that! I’m sold on this Slow Cooker Whole Wheat Spinach Lasagna!
Although I love those cute Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups that I’ve made so many times before. I’m done with that time-intensive method and moving on to this easy one. This slow cooker lasagna took no time at all to put together, especially since it’s meat-free and I didn’t have to cook the noodles in advance. Plus, it came out perfectly moist throughout. No more burnt top or edges or dried out lasagna. Hurrah!

I’d put good money on a bet that the contractor who designed our home did not have kids.
Want to know how I know this?
The doorbell is placed in the same hallway as the kids’ bedrooms. When someone rings our doorbell, it is louder in the bedrooms than it is in the living room or kitchen.
We witnessed first hand the gravity of this mistake when our friendly mail man gave a ring-a-ding about an hour into nap time.
As a result, this little note was promptly placed above our doorbell button. As you can see, it hasn’t been replaced since I put in there a year ago.
My little note to doorbell ringers grew too faded to read and once again, nap time was cut short. It was time for a change.
